WPlus9 Watercolored Anemones Sympathy

I love Wplus9 flower stamps.  I recently purchased their Watercolored Anemones and dies and thought they would make a pretty sympathy card. When making a sympathy card I like to mix a pop of color with more subdued colors as well.  I liked the look of the tangerine and grey.

The stamp set comes with a bouquet of leaves and flowers and then there are individual layered flower stamps.  I stamped the bouquet with Altenew Silver Stone Ink on Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock.

The sentiment is from Gina K. Designs Sentimental Bouquet and was stamped with Altenew Industrial Diamond ink and placed at the bottom of the grey bouquet.  Next the focal image was die cut with My Favorite Things Pierced Oval STAX and Darice Adhesive Fun Foam was added to the back.

The individual flowers were stamped with Altenew Rouge and Crimson on 80# Gina K. Designs White Cardstock.  The flower centers were stamped with Hero Hues India Ink Black and then cut with the matching dies with the Sizzix Big Shot.  The lower flower was glued to the focal image oval with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the upper flower was adhered with 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape for a little dimension.

For the card base a rectangle of Gina K. Designs 120# Navy Cardstock was cut with the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Rectangles and Darice Adhesive Fun Foam was added to the back.  Another rectangle was cut from Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock with my paper trimmer 1/8″ larger than the Lawn Fawn rectangle.  A third rectangle of Navy cardstock was cut 1/8″ larger than the white panel.  A top folding A2 Cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  All the panels were adhered together using Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  Pretty Pink Posh Metallic Silver Sequins were added to finish the card.
