Sympathy cards are some of the most difficult cards to create and send. When creating them, I usually go for soft, muted colors. Keeping them simple seems best. This week I created several sympathy cards to have on hand. The Curious Metallic Card Stock in either Gold Ice or Silver Ice worked great with the texture paste and glitter used on these cards. It created an elegant, subtle background.
To start, I created a top-folding 4.25″x 5.5″ card base from Curious Metallic Ice Gold Card Stock.
After carefully removing the stencil, I sprinkled Elizabeth Crafts Cool Diamond Glitter over the texture paste. I took the spatula and stencil to the bathroom sink to wash it. You have some time for clean-up but you want to get that stuff off. Otherwise it makes the stencil and tools unusable. After the clean-up, I tapped off the excess glitter onto a sheet of paper so I could funnel the leftovers back into the jar.
