Serenity Sympathy

We all know that Sympathy cards are so hard to create.  It is so much easier to have them on hand, vs creating at the last minute.  I have paired some gorgeous new products to create a CAS Sympathy card.  This card came together in mere minutes. If you have yet to check out the new Close To My Heart products, here is a quick look at some of the products used.  I first die cut the Olive Branches Background Die in Sapphire cardstock. This background die is so versatile and is the perfect size at 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.

I then cut a coordinating piece of pattern paper from the new Serenity Collection at 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and applied my Olive Branches die with Liquid Glass adhesive.  Liquid Glass is my go to adhesive.  It  literally holds just about everything and you only need a tiny bit! The Serenity Collection is stunning!  Here is a look at the paper pack-

I am not even a blue fan….but this paper pack just calls my  name!  LOVE! The collection coordinates with our new color of the year, Blue Belle. ( I am sure those of you from the south, will instantly think Ice Cream!) In keeping with the blue scheme, I die cut a stitched oval out of Blue Belle and stamped my sentiment in Sapphire Ink.  I popped up my sentiment panel with 3-D foam tape for added dimension.  I then mounted my completed panel to a White Daisy card base.

I finished out the inside with a sentiment from the With Heartfelt Sympathy stamp set and a zip strip from the Serenity Paper Pack.  Close To My Heart pattern papers include a coordinating zip strip on each side.  These are great for adding borders to your projects. The completed card took less than 5 minutes to create!  I plan on creating multiples to have a few on hand.
