The card I have to share with you today is one that could be an uplifting card, or a sympathy card.  Sympathy cards are always hard to make, so it is one I try to add to my collection periodically.  Occasionally when they are needed, it is hard to get your thoughts in the right place to be creative.  However, I am thinking of this card as an uplifting one.




The stamp set for this beautiful heart is the Strong Of Heart set.  It is the Make A Difference stamp set from Stampin’ Up! and is on page 5 of the Mini Catalog.  This means that Stampin’ Up! will make a donation for each stamp set purchased towards Heart Health.

I chose to use the background design, which looks like some watercolor, along with the heart outline.  Petal Pink was used for the background stamp of the heart.  The floral touch built into the heart shape is so pretty and elegant.  I colored the petals and leaves with Flirty Flamingo and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends.  The sentiment is from the stamp set as well.   For the sentiment to show up well it is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.


I had colored the heart image prior to deciding on the card layers.  To match the Just Jade, I went with a piece from the Hand Penned Designer Series Paper.  The simple stripe is just enough for detail without being too bold.  Flirty Flamingo is the layer to match the heart.  A Thick Basic White is the card base to match the white of the focal layer.  And the finishing touch is a Pearl for a little bit of special.
