with sympathy

Hello! Today I’m popping in with a card using Paper Smooches NEW November die: With Sympathy Die.

I’m sure I’m not alone when I say I struggle with this type of card. I’m pretty sure it’s because I make them when needed vs. ahead of time. At the time I need them,  nothing seems appropriate. But ahead of time, these turned out lovely and will hopefully express our love when we send them.

For these, I masked off my card panel and blended on some Distress Inks to all of them. I even have the forethought to write them down to share below!

Distress Ink color combos: The Orange-ish one: Abandoned Coral, Ripe Persimmon, and Mustard Seed. The Yellow one: Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin and Dried Marigold. The Blue one: Salty Ocean, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers. It would probably be helpful if I kept track of combos that work lovely together, but I don’t. I just wing it every time. With Distress Inks, you can generally fix any blend gone awry anyway. 🙂

For this card I used: New With Sympathy die and the previously released Paper Smooches set, Best Buds. I white heat embossed the flowers with Versamark and Hero Arts White embossing powder. It really is the perfect die for these cards. I’m planning to make some more like these to have on hand.

All the November release from Paper Smooches can be found HERE! It’s a sweet release! You’ve been warned 🙂 🙂 ! Also, be sure to follow all the fun over on the Paper Smooches Blog HERE!
