Best of Flowers Sympathy

Although I dislike making Sympathy Cards, I like to have some on hand just in case.  This became a Sympathy Card because I needed to use some kind of saying with it and the stamp set called Loving Thoughts seemed to work.  The first thing I did was take a flower stamp from the Best Of Flowers and ink with with Versamark.  Then I sprinkled White Embossing Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  If you haven’t gotten the Stampin Up! Heat Tool, you should consider it.  It is so much quieter than my old one plus it has two settings – one for melting embossing powder and one for drying wet ink.  Love it!

Anyway, after I set the embossing powder I stamped the same set in Calypso Coral over the first set of flowers and then took a paper towel to wipe off the ink that was on the white flowers.  Ink does not dry on embossing powder so you would have mess if you didn’t wipe it off.

The card still looked a little plain so I sponged Calypso Coral Ink over everything.  I like the way it came out.
