With Sympathy...


Another version of a previous card but this time I had to create a sympathy one so this is how it ended up and I just love it to bits....



EDITED TO ADD:   To get the shading on the embossed cardstock; I inked up my embossing folder by running my ink pad over the embossing folder, then popped my cardstock inside the folder, Before I ran it through the big shot machine, depending on what side of the Embossing folder you ink(ie the inside with the stampin up image on it or the inside without) gives you a different look on the embossed cardstock.



Details: All Stampin’ Up!

Stamp Sets: Apothercary art
Ink Pads: baja breeze, bashful blue, certainly celery, old olive, crumb cake
Cardstock: river rock, very vanilla,
DSP: neutrals DSP pack
Punches: eyelet border punch
Tools:  Big shot, stripes embossing folder, vintage wallpaper embossing folder, simply scored, framelits dies, blender pen,
Other:  pleated satin ribbon, twine, twitterpated buttons, basic pearls

  4. Hi Melissa. Your card is stunning. But I do have a question. How did you get the debossed areas of the stripes and wallpaper to have that darkened shadowy look? Thanks, Lisa

    1. Hi Lisa, I actually inked up my embossing folder, then popped my cardstock inside the folder, Before I ran it through the big shot machine, depending on what side of the folder you ink(ie the inside with the stampin up image on it or the inside without) gives you a different look

  5. Thanks alot. I've seen that done before, but NEVER with a look like that. The fact that it isn't a total even coverage just gives it such a fantastic vintage look. Thanks again.
