Stampin’ Up! Quiet Meadow Sympathy Card

I used the Quiet Meadow Stamp Set, the Sun Prints 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper, and the Basic Borders Dies to create this blue and white sympathy card. The Quiet Meadow Stamp Set is perfectly suited for creating sympathy, thinking of you and get-well cards.

For the card base I used a piece of thick basic white cardstock. The card front contains two panels – one in Starry Sky and the top layer uses a piece of the Sun Prints DSP in Night of Navy. These two panels were die cut using the Basic Borders Dies.

Flowers from the Quiet Meadow Stamp Set were stamped onto the Night of Navy DSP in Night of Navy ink for a tone-on-tone look. I then stamped the same flowers using white craft ink for a different look. I love the shadow effect the tone-on-tone stamping provides. I used the dotted stamp to stamp dots around the edges of three sides of the DSP panel for some added interest.

A sentiment label in basic white was added to the top portion of the card along with a double circle of Simply Elegant Trim. An additional greeting was added to the inside panel, along with a simple stamped flower from the Quiet Meadow Stamp Set. The panel was matted to a piece of Starry Sky and adhered to the inside of the card.

A single flower from the Quiet Meadow Stamp Set was stamped onto the envelope front and I added a piece of coordinating DSP to the envelope flap and cut around the flap to finish off the envelope.

We never like to have to mail sympathy cards but when needed, this sympathy card is quick and easy to recreate.

Products used to create today’s card are included below including links for each item that will take you to my online store.

Stampin’ Up Wonderful World Sympathy Card

I used the Wonderful World BundleWonderful World Stamp Set and Wonderful World 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper – to create today’s card. The Wonderful World stamp set, and paper makes a pretty, quick and easy card that would also be suitable as a birthday card or thinking of you card.

The Wonderful World Bundle is available as a free item with any qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration which is going on now through August 31. Don’t delay grabbing this bundle for yourself, though, as Sale-A-Bration items are selling out! The Pool Party & Soft Sea Foam Cards & Envelopes and the Tree Lot Dies are sold out! [Stampin’ Up! has just added some more free products that you can earn during Sale-A-Bration, though. Be sure to read through to the end for info about those items.]

I started with a card base in Mossy Meadow cardstock and adhered a panel of the beautiful Wonderful World DSP to the card front, followed by a coordinating strip of DSP to the left edge. A panel of Pear Pizzazz was die cut using the Deckled Rectangles Dies and a length of Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon was adhered horizontally across the bottom of the die cut panel. This panel was then adhered to the center of the card front.

From the large flower print Wonderful World DSP I fussy cut one of the white flowers and adhered the flower to the Pear Pizzazz panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. A sentiment label was added in white cardstock with a Mossy Meadow mat using the Label Me Lovely Punch. The sentiment I used came from the Eden’s Garden Stamp Set and was stamped in Mossy Meadow. The sentiment label was adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A small bow tied from the Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon was added to the left of the sentiment label and several Brushed Brass Butterflies adorn the card front.

One of the flower images from the Wonderful World Stamp set was stamped in Pear Pizzazz ink onto the inside label and adhered to the inside of the card. The same image was stamped onto the envelope front. A piece of coordinating DSP was added to the envelope to finish off the card.

The Wonderful World Stamp Set and Wonderful World Designer Series Paper is one of my favorite Sale-A-Bration items! The stamped images or gorgeous, as is the paper! You’ll want this bundle to add to your stash for sure! But, as I mentioned, don’t delay…Sale-A-Bration items are selling out and we only have one month left of Sale-A-Bration!
