With Sympathy Card by Bridget Louw

#couturecreationsaus #ultimatecrafts  

Hello everyone, Bridget here again for another project to hopefully inspire you. 
This one is for the cardies out there. 
I have used the absolutely gorgeous stamps and dies from the Ooh La La range.

Today’s offering is a quick Sympathy card to make for when you need one in a hurry. Let’s get started.

For the peacock feather cut a piece of cardstock 3”x 6”. Cut a piece of the double sided adhesive paper from Couture Creations to the same size. Stick the adhesive sheet to the cardstock and remove the top tape revealing the adhesive. Cover this with the superfine glitter.

Now that you have created your own ultra sparkly glitter paper, cut one peacock feather die.

The next step is equally easy.
Using your non-stick craft mat directly apply ink from 3 shades of blue you want to use for your “watercolour” background. Using an aqua brush randomly apply the colours to a 5 3/8” x 3 7/8” piece of watercolour paper. Set aside to dry. 

Add more water to the remaining ink on the mat and rub a piece of seam binding in it to create a matching piece of ribbon for your bow. Set aside to dry.

Cut a piece of vellum 1” x 6” Using an embossing ink pad, stamp the “With Sympathy” stamp on it and heat emboss it with the Silver Super Sparkles embossing powder. Take care not to overheat the vellum with the heat tool to avoid warping. Cut a fishtail on the right hand side of the sentiment.

Cut a piece of teal/turquoise cardstock to 5 ½” x 4” and stick the watercolour piece to the front of it.
Place the vellum to the front of the card, placing tape on the back of the turquoise cardstock to hide it.
Tie a bow in the ribbon and place it on the bottom left corner of the card, using tape on the back of the card to adhere it to. Stick this piece to the front of the card. 

Lastly, using the Turbo Precision Glue Pen apply glue to the pack of the peacock feather and glue it to the front of the card.
