Remember: A Sympathy Card

It wasn't long after Remembrance Day when I was working with the new Tina's Flower Spray stamps and matching stencil from Claritystamp.  They seemed perfect to make a sympathy card.
Blend Festive Berries Oxide and Peeled Paint Oxide through the Tina’s Flower Spray stencil onto a piece of 7” x 7” Clarity stencil card.
Stamp the flower heads over the stencilled image using Red Geranium Archival ink.
Add a little Thistle archival ink to the edges of the stamps and add an extra layer of stamping.
Stamp the whole flower spray stamp over the top in Onyx Black Versafine ink.
Trim the card back to 6.5” x 6.5” and brush Blaze Artistry ink around the edges of the card.
Stamp Remember (Word Chain 5) in black ink and heat emboss with clear powder.
Using the fifth smallest nested circle picot die, cut round the flower heads.
Remove the picot edges of the plaque using a slightly smaller circle die.
Add clear heat embossing to the flower heads using an embossing pen and clear embossing powder. Repeat to create a very smooth, glossy effect.
Add the background to the front of a 7” x 7” black card blank.
Add the circular panel, lining up the leaves and leaving an even border all round.
To finish, add two of Barbara’s word stickers.
