Prized Peony Sympathy Card

Hi Everyone,

Today I have made another card for a colour challenge, but this time I have made a sympathy card using the lovely Peony Garden Suite.  The colours for the challenge were Calypso Coral, Pool Party and Basic Grey. Let me show you what I did.


1 piece of Calypso Coral card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
1 piece of Pool Party card stock 2 1/4" x 3 1/2" and a 2 1/4" circle
1 piece of Whisper White card stock 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" for the inside and a 2" circle
1 piece of dsp 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" in basic grey
1 piece of floral basic grey dsp 2" x 3 1/4"
Pool Party ink
Basic Grey ink
Calypso Coral ink
Multipurpose adhesive


Score the calypso coral card at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Stamp a sentiment on the whisper white layer using calypso coral ink and then adhere to the inside of the card.

Adhere the larger piece of dsp to the centre of the card front leaving a small border all the way around.

Add the grey floral dsp to the pool party layer and adhere to the card front.

Stamp a small peony image in the centre of the 2" circle of whisper white using pool party ink and then add the sentiment over the top using basic grey.  Adhere this layer to the pool party circle and add to the card front using dimensionals.

A quick and easy card for one of those difficult times.
