Sympathy card : dual use of your Impress-ion plate

Hello everyone! Lounon here!
Today, I am sharing with you a sympathy card. I wanted a clean design and neutral colors and decided to use my beautiful Peony Impress-ion Press + Foil Plate as a letterpress and a foil plate on the same card.

First I used the beautiful Peony Impress-ion Press + Foil Plate twice. I used it as a letterpress plate once onto grey watercolor cardstock with black ink and I foiled it with white foil onto black cardstock. I framed them with the Floating Squares Die.
After that, I used the Floating Squares Die onto black and grey cardstocks. I kept the frames.
I used my A2 Diagonal Stitched Rectangle Layered Card Toppers Die Set to cut a 3 3/4″ x 5″ onto pewter cardstock.
 I glued the grey frame on my stitched rectangle and I glued the black and white floral panel on the middle. I glued the black frame on top.
After that, I put my grey panel on the middle of the black frame ( I didn’t glue it). I used the grey frame on the top to align and put my die on top of the grey floral square. I used low tack tape to keep the die in place.
I die cut my grey floral square.
I glued the grey floral panel on the middle of my black frame and I aligned and put my stitched die on top of my stitched panel.
The main panel is now almost done. I used the Floating Squares Die to cut a small corner piece onto pewter cardstock. I trimmed it and glued it on the middle of the black floral panel.
Then, I stamped my Sympathy Stack Stamp onto black cardstock with my Watermark Emboss Pad, embossed it with fine white embossing powder and die cut it with the coordinate Sentiment Stack Die II.
I glued it on my panel with foam pads.
Finally, I matted and layered my card with a bigger black stitched rectangle.
Et voilà !
May the craft be with you !
