Clean and Simple Sympathy Card

Hi, everyone! Thank you for joining me for this clean and simple sympathy card. This card uses several techniques I learned in my latest Altenew class on floral composition. I highly recommend this class if you are wanting to increase your floral card skills! Make sure to check out the video for all the details!

First, I stamped the images on Spicy Yogurt card stock from Altenew. The flowers were from the “Build-a-Flower Gardenia” set and the leaves were from the “Beautiful Day” set.

Next, I used my 0.1 tip black pen to add detail and shadowing to the flower.

This process is labor intensive, but immediately changes your card to look more professional and bold. After I added pen to all the shadowed areas, it was time to add a small amount of color to the petals and leaves. Using a small blending brush, I added a small amount of color to the flower image.

Then, I added gray to the leaves with an even smaller blending brush.

To keep this sympathy card clean and simple, I didn’t want to add too many elements. So, I added small splatters of blush, black spray ink and silver watercolor.

The last element was some metallic thread to add extra texture to the card. I learned so much in the floral composition class by Jaycee Gasper and highly recommend it for the advanced card makers out there!
