Sympathy Card – Lovely When You Smile Paper Collection

Does a paper collection ever inspire you so much that you get distracted? This happened to me today! 

Use your “busy” floral papers to make beautiful sympathy cards!

I have created several projects with the “Lovely When You Smile” paper collection by Craft O’Clock, so I had a TON of usable scraps on hand. This card uses ALL scraps!

Watch the full video tutorial:

I started with a 6″ x 12″ scrap of cardstock that I folded in half. Then I used strips and pieces of the paper collection to create a half-panel on the front of the card.

Look closely at the details… EASY to do!

  • Basic strips of paper
  • Basic corners cut from paper (square punched, then cut on a diagonal)
  • The flowers, butterflies and leaves are just fussy-cut images from the collection
  • A stamped sentiment on the actual card base itself (if I mess up, I can easily cover it up!)
  • Basic stamping inside the card
  • Die cutting a rectangle out of a paper scrap and then stamping inside the rectangle

You can do this! Give it a try!

I also made an envelope to go with my card, but I used some random paper from my craft stash for that (I didn’t want to cut up my good Craft O’Clock paper for an envelope!)
