Floral Sympathy Card

Floral Sympathy Card

I’ve found that making sympathy cards isn’t always a pleasant task so today I’m sharing this Floral Sympathy Card.  For a recent Sympathy Card Stamp-A-Stack, I used the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper for a lovely background to a sincere greeting.  When combined with the Gold Foil-Edged Cards and Envelopes, you will get a beautiful card to send.  #simplestamping

Measurements and instructions:


  1. Cut Petal Promenade DSP at 5″ x 3-3/4”.  Use Liquid Glue to attach to the front of the Gold Foil Edged card base.
  2. Use the Big Shot and the Scalloped Oval Framelit to cut a layer of Gold Foil Cardstock.
  3. Use Mossy Meadow (or Grapefruit Grove) Classic Ink to stamp greeting on Whisper White Cardstock.  Use the Big Shot and the Stitched Oval Framelits to cut out the greeting.  Attach to the Gold Scalloped Oval with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

These are the products used for this card:

Celebrating 100 Years Young!

Celebrating 100 Years Young!

Celebrating 100 years young!!  No, I’m not the one who’s reached this milestone but we were lucky enough to be invited to a celebration for this happy event!  The woman who was celebrating is an amazing lady!  She was our neighbour on the farm for more than 20 years, was my junior high school teacher and has continued to keep in touch while moving to a few locations in Alberta before settling in our home town of Spruce Grove!!

What a delight to be able to visit and catch up on family happenings with her, her son and his family, her granddaughter, her grandson & his family – 4 generations of family friends – we are so blessed to know them!!

Of course, when we knew we would be attending, I just knew I had to make an extra special card for this extra special lady!!  I’m happy to share my creation with you here:

This is the front of the card:

When you open it up, it unfolds with this greeting and images:
