I needed a sympathy card last week and I wanted a clean layout, so I used CTS#7 from CAS(E) This Sketch, along with Clearly Sentimental about Sympathy from My Favorite Things.
These are never fun cards to make, and they're the ones I don't want to keep on hand so I prefer a more simple look and quiet colour combination. I started with a Whip Cream card base then layered on some Steel Grey and Kraft cardstock. I ran the Kraft layer through my modern wallpaper embossing folder for a little texture.
The patterned paper is from the My Mind's Eye Meadow collection and I inked around the edges with Old Paper distress ink. I added a strip of cream crochet trim and used the smallest size of the Upsy Daisy Die-namics to cut out the flower from patterned paper. The Sentiment Strips Die-namics was perfect for cutting out the flag and I stamped the sentiment with Memento London Fog ink, in keeping with the quiet feel of the card.
I used the Small Scallop Border Die-namics to cut out the little scallop accent and added some small pearls.
On the inside I repeated the layout and created a negative flower accent by cutting the flower out of the green patterned rectangle then backing it with blue patterned paper.
Here are the supplies I used:
