Heartfelt Sympathy

I made this card a while back. The patterned paper and the River Rock cardstock (the card base) are now retired, but I thought you might like to know how I placed the flourish at the top of this card. This is a 3x6 card.

The flourish is from the stamp set "Baroque Motifs", which I stamped with Versamark ink on the card base and clear embossed it. I stamped the sympathy stamp from the "Close as a Memory" set in Always Artichoke ink. Then, after insuring the sentiment was dry and using my embossing buddy over the cardstock, I used my stampamajig to help place the same stamp onto the Summer Sun cardstock so that it lined up with the one on the base and again used the clear embossing technique.

The final touch is tying the Mellow Moss tafetta ribbon around the top of the patterned paper before adhering it to the card front.

Don't forget to leave a comment and have your name entered into my July 15th draw!

Oh, this is great because I always have difficulty trying to figure out a way to use patterned paper! I also really like the three color look [maybe I only know what I mean by that, though:)].

Thanks, Amy!
