Green Lily Sympathy

Julie Warner-justwritedesigns-The Write Stuff

Congrats to Debbie, the Featured Stamper this week on Splitcoast (FS283)! Such a wonderful gallery! I chose her CAS Sympathy to case. I kept the colors and layout and sympathy card but I changed the papers, images and used a punched butterfly instead of a stamped one.

The image are from Our Daily Bread designs. Sadly, I needed a sympathy card and I thought Debbie’s layout and serene colors would be perfect. The images are new from Our Daily Bread designs.

I first white embossed the lily image on the green, but I didn’t really think it looked the way I wanted. So I stamped it in black on another piece of the green, bleached the lilies then added color w/ markers and cut it out. I attached it a little down on the white embossed one so a little of the white would show. I also painted a little bleach on some of the corner elements in the border image. The sentiment was stamped directly on the designer paper and the double layer butterfly was added below. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
