A CAS Sympathy Card - BA Inspiration

Good evening, Julie here with a late evening bit of BA inspiration. 
It's the start of a new challenge at Perfectly CAS and my DT inspiration card uses Uniko's Pure Floral - Lily set to make a sympathy card.
Sympathy cards are not the easiest of cards to make so I try to have a couple ready in my stash for those unwanted but necessary occasions. You don't always have the inspiration for a brand new make at times like that.

So here is quite a quick CAS card to add to your stash.

The lilies were stamped with Memento Grey Flannel on white card and masked to create a bouquet. After colouring with Copic markers, using a Googled image as a guide, I cut out the bouquet with a circle die. I also cut a piece of copy paper with the same die for use later.

Using the original circle die and a slightly smaller one, I die cut a frame from white fun foam and then cut a frame from my die cut, stamped panel to match. The fun foam frame was added to the copy paper and the centre panel also. The outer frame was then added to the fun foam frame matching the pattern and a sentiment from All Occasion Sentiments, stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with white EP, added. I think the frame adds interests but keeps the card CAS.

The completed panel was then added to a 5 x 7 dark grey card. White space isn't always white!

Hopefully I've given you a idea for a card for a hard to make situation. One I hope will be in my stash for quite awhile!!

So 'til next time, keep safe and keep crafting!
