SugarPea Designs February Release Day 2

Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the SugarPea Designs winter release! Wasn't Day 1 AMAZING? I just love the new products being released and today is no exception!
 

Today the team is showcasing another GORGEOUS new set called Heartfelt Sympathy and coordinating Sympathy SugarCut. I just love how nicely it pairs with the Pretty Peonies set that was showcased yesterday. I know that these will be my new go-to Sympathy supplies for any needed cards. I was just mentioning recently that I hate needing Sympathy cards, but now I have one on hand. You can see what the rest of the designers have created here: 
Guests:

 I wanted to keep my color palette soft, but cheering. I like to strike a balance between cheerfulness and respect and I think this blush and grey combination achieves that. To begin, I used the Card Front Element Builder SugarCuts that were showcased yesterday as well. I used them in a different way to show how versatile they can be. The possibilities are endless with these and I have only scraped the surface of what I plan to do with these! I can't wait! I stamped the peonies in black ink at each corner as well as the sentiment on the bottom. I really like how all of the sentiments work so well together! I normally wouldn't use two sentiments on a card front, but with this new set, it worked seamlessly! The addition of the die cut really made it possible to add in an extra sentiment to strike a balance between the bold and the narrow.


The ran the die cut 5 times through my Cuttlebug. I embossed the tips of the letters like I did on yesterday's card. I also added an additional layer with some Nuvo Glaze for some shine. The "with deepest" sentiment is heat embossed in gold as well to bring in a touch of warmth. The sequins finish off this design. Thanks for fluttering by!

I agree with you that it is hard to know the balance of "cheerful" to somber in a sympathy card design, but I think you struck the right balance here. I really like the color palette as well as the overall design.
