Remarkable You Peace Lily Sympathy Cards

The other cards I've featured so far for my Sympathy Card Stamp-a-Stack have been a little more all-occasion looking, but today's set of cards truly has a "sympathy" card feel.  The peace lily from the Remarkable You set is perfect, because it seems to be a popular flower choice for sending during difficult times.


Color Disclaimer—I have to start off immediately with a disclaimer…I swear this card base is not black!  It's actually Blackberry Bliss, but I can't seem to get a good photo representation of this dark, rich color. 


Background Basics—I started by embossing the 4" x 5-1/4" Blackberry Bliss layer with the Stylish Stripes and adhering it to the Blackberry Bliss card base.  You could certainly emboss the card front directly, but I like embossing a separate layer to enhance the stability of the card.


Peace Lily Focal Point—I started by stamping the Remarkable You peace lily with Memento Black Ink onto a 4" x 3-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla. I stamped it again onto scrap Very Vanilla for the popped up layer. I mounted it onto a 4" x 3-1/2" piece of Mint Macaron before adhering it to the card front.

Paper-Piercing—I colored the stems on the main layer with a Blender Pen and Mint Macaron Ink Pad.  I also colored the blossom on the scrap card stock with Mint Macaron for the lower part of the flower and Delightful Dijon for the inside of the flower.  I used the paper-piecing technique for the flower; I hand-cut it with my super-sharp Paper Snips and popped it up with Dimensionals. For this one, I also added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the flower center with a 2-Way Glue Pen.

Sweet Sentiment—I added a greeting from the classic Thoughts & Prayers stamp set, also in Memento Black Ink.  That set has been around forever and is great to have on hand specifically for times like these.

Finishing Touches—I tied a cute little bow with the Gold Baker's Twine and attached it with a Glue Dot.  I also used Glue Dots to easily adhere the Gold Sequins with no mess!


Two Cool—For the second version, I used a different Thoughts & Prayers sentiment and moved the entire focal point to the bottom.  The lilies are also tilted a little, which I really like!


Three Cool—The final card design is centered onto a horizontal card base and uses an appropriate phrase from the Best Thoughts host set.

  1. I really like the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder for these cards. Certainly adds so much class to them. I have refrained from buying this set, but you do such a great job with it, I will have to rethink it! Thanks for sharing!
