Embossed sympathy card

It’s never easy to give condolences, but it’s something we must all do at one time or another. During a tumultuous period, it can be hard to find the right moment to offer your support. They might want their own space so a visit may be impossible, and a text might seem impersonal. A card is the perfect middle ground – you can drop it round without troubling anyone, secure in the fact that they’ll open it whenever they want, and receive a loving little boost.

Embossed sympathy card

Craft Essentials
Patterned paper, Make & Create Inspiring Pastels
Stamps: Clearly Besotted Floral Spray, Occasion Calligraphy
Ink pad, embossing
Embossing powders: blue, white
Alcohol markers
Dura-Lar matt film
Anti-static bag

1 Create a white blank. 11.5cm x 16cm. Add a smaller layer of blue patterned paper on top. Cut out a small piece of Dura-Lar and rub an anti-static bag over it. Stamp a flower using embossing ink and sprinkle white embossing powder over the top. Heat to set.

2 Colour in the motif with alcohol markers. Apply darker hues for shading, but don’t add as many layers as you would with cardstock. Stamp ‘With sympathy’ onto a separate strip of white cardstock.

3 Add glue behind the floral part of the Dura-Lar and also underneath the part that will be covered by the sentiment strip. Adhere the image onto the greeting. Fix the sentiment strip on top to finish.
