Dandelion Sympathy


The dandelions were cut from Vellum Cardstock with a Sweet Silhouettes Die, and lightly glued to a Basic Gray Cardstock background. I wanted the dandelions to have an “airy” feel, and the Vellum was perfect for the task. It’s surprising how strong Vellum is!

The teardrops are from a retired pack of epoxy drops, and the shape is so perfect, I had to use them.  I’ve listed the new pack of Epoxy Droplets in my Product List.


The Basic Gray background is embossed with Subtle Texture, glued to the Smoky Slate card base, and framed with a piece of 6X6 Seaside Spray Designer Series Paper. The frame and background were made with Stitched Rectangles Dies.


The word,”sympathy,” is from the Well Written Die Set, cut from Smoky Slate Cardstock, and doubled for thickness. The sentiment is continued on the inside with words from the Well Said Stamp Set, “Know that love, prayers, and caring surround you today.”

I completed the envelope by embossing the flap with the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder, so it’s ready to send.


Two challenges were on my mind as I made today’s card.
