Sympathy cards are always the hardest cards to make. We lost a very sweet aunt in May. I wanted to create a card to celebrate her gentle soul. I used the Love You Always Foil Sheets #154286 which are set to retire on June 30th, currently on sale for $5.00! I embossed the foil sheets with Magnolia 3D EF #149579. The sentiment is from the new Inspired Thoughts stamp set #155536 die cut using the Stitched So Sweetly die set #151690. The accent flower is a sticker from a retired Memories & More set that coordinated with the Magnolia set.
This card was made for our son to give to his grandma. Sadly, the Kangaroo & Company bundle is retiring on June 30th. However, I will be holding on to it. The blue background was created using the Blending Brushes (153611) & Balmy Blue ink. I coloured the kangaroo using the Stampin’ Blends then die cut them out with the coordinating dies. I just love that cute little envelope that fits perfectly in the kangaroos pouch. The heart from the Resin Hearts (154578) fits perfectly on the stamped heart on the envelope. The Basic White cardstock was die cut using the new Scalloped Contours dies (155560).
The inside sentiment is from a new stamp set found on page 52 of the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue called Inspired Thoughts (155536). It is part of a bundle but for this card, I only used the sentiment, not the dies. On the inside, I also stamped a little roo.
