Inspiring Iris Sympathy Card

Hello! Today’s card features the Inspiring Iris stamp set, which will be retiring on May 3rd. I needed to make a few sympathy cards last month and turned to this set, which I must confess, I haven’t used too often. It has lovely images and sentiments. I used the Dandy Garden Designer Series Papers because I thought the designs in the Misty Moonlight color would work well for male recipients of some of the cards.

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut a piece of Misty Moonlight cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″, fold and crease with a bone folder.
  • Cut piece of the Dandy Gardens DSP at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to card front. Cut a coordinating piece of DSP at 3″x 4 1/2″.
  • Cut piece of Basic White cardstock at 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4.” This is a two-step stamp so first stamp the outline image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Stamp the fill-in image for the flower petals with Misty Moonlight ink. Stamp the fill-in image for the leaves with Old Olive ink.
  • Stamp greeting with Misty Moonlight ink in upper left corner. I used one of the greetings from the Prized Peony stamp set.
  • Adhere the coordinating piece of DSP to the card front, placing it at an angle. Adhere the stamped piece, centering it over the DSP. Adhere a large Opel Round at the bottom right of the stamped image.
  • For the inside of the card, cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Stamp the greeting from the Inspiring Iris stamp set with Misty Moonlight ink. Stamp the geometric image, centering it at the bottom of the piece. Adhere to card.

This is another version of the card I made using the same two pieces of DSP but, switching them up in the layout.
