Lasting Lilies Sympathy Card

This is the last card we made in Stamp Club this week. The Lasting Lilies is one of my favorites of the Sale-a-bration (SAB) Catalog. And now that we have matching Lily Framelits (#150071, $27) it only makes the stamp set better. Both the Lasting Lilies Stamp Set and the Lily Framelits (they are part of the Sale-a-bration Coordination promotion) are only available until March 31st or while supplies last.

I started off with a Tranquil Tide card base cut at, 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. The stamping was done on a piece of Whisper White cut at, 4″ x 5 1/2″. The sentiment comes with the Lasting Lilies Stamp Set and the label is in the Lilies Framelits.

I found it easier to stamp the flowers in Blackberry Bliss first and then the stems and leaves in Tranquil Tide, why? Because the lilies are so big, if you don’t leave yourself enough space, you’ve lost a lily. When you stamp the stems, you will stamp over the bottom of the lily. Right where the bulb is. You can see it in the one I stamped inside.  I stamped a large and a small lily on a piece of scrap Whisper White and die cut them both along with the label. I stamped the sentiment and then die cut. I added both of those with Dimensionals.

For the inside I added another piece of Whisper White cut at 4 x 5 1/4″. I punched out that little flower with the Detailed Trio Punch and then stamped the lily and stem, then I adhered to the inside. Make sure you stamp and punch first then glue to your card, just in case you make an error, you can always turn the paper over and try again.

I flicked some Blackberry Ink with my Stampin’ Write Marker around the lilies.

I added the Tranquil Tide Mini Ruffled Ribbon around the front panel. This is one of the In Colors (2017-2019) that will be retiring soon. If you like this color or the other 4 colors (see page 183 of the annual catalog), I would suggest you get the colors/items you want. Once the retirement list comes out in April or May the In Colors are the first to go.  You can order them HERE!
