Arianna Blooms Sympathy Card
Good Morning, Friends! Welcome to another edition of Heartfelt Creations Wednesday. This week, we’re continuing our reveal of the exquisite Arianna Blooms Collection. I have an Arianna Blooms sympathy card to share with you. You’ll find a complete supply list and detailed tutorial for this card at the end of my post.
This 6″ square easel card combines the Arianna Blooms die with the Arianna Lace die. The flower petals have been “pinched” to create a sort of pleated look. I think these blooms look a lot like pink striped petunias, don’t you? The elements in the Arianna Lace Die add so much to this card.
Here it is with the easel opened. I used 2 pre-designed card fronts on the cover of the card, and one of the beautiful borders on the inside. The corners were also cropped. The gorgeous ribbon is Sherbet Delicate Stitched Satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
This beautiful sentiment is from Sympathy Sentiment PreCut Set. I think sympathy cards can be so hard to make, because it’s often hard to know what to say. This set says it perfectly.
And that’s all for me this week, folks! I hope you’ll stop by the HC BLOG to take a look at all the other designer’s beautiful projects. You can also find links in my sidebar. I know you’ll be inspired. Thanks for stopping by! Your visits make me happy right down to the tips of my crafty little fingers!
