Wreath of Sympathy

I needed a sympathy card so I decided to try a wreath of flowers and this is what I came up with.  I cut out a circle from the center of the card using a Spellbinder circle and placed various flower punches around creating a wreath.  Not sure if you can see the dimension, but then I stamped my sentiment on cream cardstock and popped it up on the inside of the card so it looks recessed.

For the inside of the card, I used Spellbinders Labels Four combined with Walzingmouse Stamps' coordinating Vintage Labels Four stamp for the pink border (Victorian Velvet Distress Ink). I also made a pocket for the check we will be giving.

  • Punches: SU Boho Blossoms, SU Two-Step Bird, Marvy 1" Circle
  • Paper: Creative Imaginations Samantha Walker
  • Stamp: Amy R Sympathy Sentiments, SU Hostess Punch Potpourri, Waltzingmouse Vintage Labels Four
  • Spellbinders Circles, Spellbinders Labels Four
