Two Clean & Simple Sorry Greeting Cards
Hi friends, welcome to another blog post! Really, let’s face it, I know it can be hard sometimes to make Sorry or Sympathy cards. To me, these types of cards are my last favorite to make. However, being a card-maker makes me happy because… even in difficult times we as card-makers still can bring a little sunshine in paper form to those Friends or Family Members in need by making them a special handmade greeting. So, on today’s blog I’d like to share with you how I have made these two-quick clean, yet simple Sorry cards. Please keep on reading the post ↓
To begin with for the first example, I started by creating the card panel as usual. To create this white on white die-cutting card panel, I started by running through the die-cutting machine the Stemmed Leaves Die 5X to die-cut the leaves out of white card stock. Once the die-cuttings were done, I adhered each of the backing of the leaves to an A2 size white card panel. Right after when the leaves were all adhered, I trimmed 1/8’’ from each the edge of the card panel, and I set it aside. In the meantime, I ran through the die-cutting machine the solid heart die from the Sorry Stamp Bundle to die-cut it out of one of one of the Color Crush Solids a green-yellow color as you can see in the picture above. Also, I ran through the die-cutting machine the out-liner heart die to die-cut out of white card stock. Lastly, after the die-cuttings were done I white heat embossed the Sorry sentiment on the solid heart die-cutting with Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder (by the way this sentiment is included in the Sorry Stamp Bundle) as soon as I was done white heat embossing the sentiment, I adhered the outlined heart die-cutting on top of the solid heart, and I adhered the backing of it right in the center of the card with 3M tape to add a little bit of dimension.
For the second example, I created the card panel by running through the die-cutting machine one of the Color Crush Patterns along with the Oh Happy Day Shaker Dies. As you can see this die makes two cuts at once the edge, and inner part of the frame which in this case, I used both for this card panel. In the meantime, I also ran through the die-cutting machine the both heart dies that I used previously for the first card. However, this time I die-cut them both out of white card stock. Right after the die-cutting, I white heat embossed the Sorry sentiment once again in a leftover piece of the solid patterned paper that I used for the previous example, and I ran the sentiment through the die-cutting machine along with its coordinated die. To finish the card panel off, I adhered the backing of the layered heart in the inner piece of the frame with 3M tape to add dimension, and I also adhered the Sorry die-cutting right in the center of the heart with liquid glue to add even more dimension.
Finally, to finish both cards off I adhered each of the card panels to an A2 size top folding white card base, and to give them a little contrast I ran through the die-cutting machine Envelope Liner Wafer Die along with a patterned paper from the same Color Crush Patterns to die cut the envelope liners as you can see in the previous picture.
