Hello Digi Divas! Welcome to Jan's Blog. Like many, I have had the occasion to need a sympathy card and find that I have none. I drew this beautiful new Digi Set- Lovin' Lily of the Valley- to fill that need. I have a short step by step tutorial today for this new sympathy card. Come along....
Suggested card size - 5"x7"
MATERIALS LIST: COPIC® MARKERS:
4035J - Lovin' Lily of the Valley Digital Stamp Set E30, E33- Thorns & Window Frame

To start this lovely card, draw a 5"x7" rectangle as a guide. Size the window to
2-1/8"x4-1/4" and place approximately 3/4" from the left and the top of the rectangle.
Size the florals 3-3/8"x5-5/8" and place approximately 1/2" from the right and 3/4" from the top.
Size the sentiment 1-7/8"x3/4" and place just under the window as shown.
Copy and paste on the other half of sheet.
Print on Hammermill® 100lb White Coverstock.
Color as desired. I chose to use Copic® Markers; list of colors above.
Fussy cut the right image including the window panes.
Trace the outside edge of the window on the
WorldWin® Translucent Vellum (white) and
fussy cut out.
Place Tear-ific® Tape on the back side of the window frame as shown.
Align and adhere the WorldWin® Translucent Vellum to the backside.
Apply Foam® Tape to the backside of the image. Be sure not to place any in the windows. Set to the side.
On the left image, color the window panes as desired with random colors.
Cut the image in a rectangle 4-3/4"x6-3/4".
To help align... left cut edge is about 5/8" from the window edge. Bottom cut edge is about 1-3/4" from the bottom of the window.
Cut a 5"x7" Rectangle for card front. Punch all four corners of the image with a decorative corner punch. I used an overlapping circle punch to mimic the window frame.
Using Tear-ific® Tape center and adhere the image to the pink rectangle.
Align and adhere the fussy cut image over the image on the card front using Foam® Tape.
Adhere the card front to the cardbase with fold on the left.
OPTIONAL: Adhere a name plaque and scrap strips and/or images to the backside of the card.
