Simple sympathy

Welcome to my crafty blog. I’m back with another sympathy card today (replenishing my stock which is sadly depleted). I’ve gone for a very simple design, keeping it really stripped back, inspired by this week’s theme over at TGIF Challenges

I’ve used the ‘Poppies’ unmounted clear stamp set from Claritystamp, and started by simply stamping the flowers and leaves in black Archival onto a rectangle of white card. I stamped the poppies first, and then positioned the leaves around them. I then mounted the white card onto a slightly larger black piece to frame it.

Next step was to attach the topper onto a 6×6 card blank. Because I’d used a rectangle it left me space to stamp the sentiment below it, directly onto the card blank.

Sometimes less is definitely more. I was pleased with this design, and might make some more in other colours, but keeping each card monochrome.
