Hues of Happiness Thinking of You card

Unfortunately I've had to make some sympathy cards lately and here is one of them using the Hues of Happiness suite of products


I always like to use white on the inside of the card and diecut it to make it special.  And don't forget to decorate the envelope by either covering the flap with pretty papers or stamping on it.  We all love to get some pretty cards in the mail and especially when you are trying to cheer up someone!

Here are all the details to make this card:


  • Stamp Sets – Go To Greetings (158763); Peaceful Moments (151595)
  • Card Stock – Gorgeous Grape (146987); Highland Heather (146986); Basic White (159276)
  • Stamp Pads – Gorgeous Grape (147099)
  • Misc. – Hues of Happiness (DSP)  (158822); Blossoming Happiness Dies (158823); Artisan Additions Dies (159172); Stylish Shapes Dies (159183); Deckled Rectangles  Dies (159173); White 3/8” Glittered Ribbon (156408); Sponge Dauber (133773); In Color Opal Rounds (159185); Basic White Envelope (159236); Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755); Dimensionals (104430); Stampin’ Seal (152813)



  • Gorgeous Grape:     8 1/2” x 5 1/2”                        3 ½” x 4”
  • Highland Heather:   4” x 5 ¼”
  • Basic White:                4” x 2” scrap for banner  4” x 5 “                       
  • DSP:               small piece with full flower on it     2 ¼”x 5 ½” for envelope    



  • Score the card base at 4 ¼”
  • Die cut the floral piece on left of card using the Artisan Additions Dies.  You can do this two ways.  You can first put the cardstock on Adhesive Sheets (152452) and then die cut or just die cut.  I die cut and then put small amounts of liquid glue on the back and adhered to the left side of the Highland Heather piece.
  • Die cut the flower from the DSP using the Blooming Happiness die that matches the flower.
  • Since we no longer have Gorgeous Grape sheer ribbon (use if you have it!), I took some (about 5 ¾”) White Glittered Ribbon and colored it using my Gorgeous Grape ink and a sponge dauber. Attach around the Highland Heather piece
  • Die cut the banner from the Stylish Shapes dies and stamp the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape ink.  Attach over the ribbon using dimensionals.  Attach the diecut flower using dimensionals.
  • Adhere the card front to the card base and decorate with 5 of the In Color Opal rounds
  • Die cut the large piece of Basic White using the Deckled Rectangle Dies for the inside of the card.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the white piece.  
  • Cover the envelope flap with the small piece of DSP using liquid glue
