It’s a Throwback Thursday. Today’s TBT project is a Thoughts & Prayers Sympathy Card.
I made this card last year for a friend who lost her Mother. It is CASEd from a gorgeous card by Jackie Pedro (The Scalloped Edge).
Thoughts & Prayers Stamp Set
I just have to showcase this stamp set. It is so lovely. Gentle is a word I would use to describe it. There are times when it’s hard to think of the right sentiment for a card. The Thoughts & Prayers stamp set sentiments always seem to help find one.
Retired Stampin’ Up! Product Substitutions
This card was made using several Stampin’ Up! products – two of which are retired. The decorative paper is the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the ribbon is the Pool Party 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon. IMHO you could recreate the look of this card using the current Delighful Daisy DSP.
Change the Island Indigo cardstock mat to a color that coordinates with your choice of DSP and then select one of the many Stampin’ Up! color coordinated ribbons to replace the Pool Party 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon.
Odds & Ends
The buttons on the front of the Thoughts & Prayers Sympathy card came from my button box. Odds and ends from the past. The scalloped border was created using a non-Stampin’ Up! border punch. I think the card would look lovely with a border created using the Stampin’ Up! Decorative Ribbon Border Punch.
Square Card Square Envelope
The Thoughts & Prayers Sympathy Card measures 5″ x 5″. No standard pre-made envelope for this one so I used my Envelope Punch Board to make the envelope. To decorate the flap, flip the envelope over and place it face-down on the back of the DSP you want to use. Trace the outline and cut it out. Adhere it using a strong glue like the Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Speaking of Envelope Punch Board here’s a nifty little video about it:
