Orchid Oasis Sympathy Willow Card with Monochromatic 2022-2024 InColor

This Sympathy Willow Card was created with the new Orchid Oasis In-Color cardstock. While we never want to need a card like this, it’s quick to make with a monochromatic design and gold embossing.

This is my fourth of five tutorials featuring the 2022-2024 In-Colors! To see the other colors and fun monochromatic projects, click on the colors below!

Notably, these willow tree stamps are a two-step set, which means two separate stamps pair together to make a complete image. This is beneficial because you can make each piece a different color or die-cut out only a part of it!

How to make an Orchid Oasis Sympathy Willow Card:

Cut your cardstock:

  • Orchid Oasis
    • 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, folded at 4 1/4” for your cardbase
    • 3 7/8” x 5 1/8” for your willow tree layer
    • 3/4” x 2 1/4” for the sentiment
  • Gold Foil
    • 4” x 5 1/4”
    • 7/8” x 2 3/8” for the sentiment

Stamp the Tree:

  • With Black Memento ink, stamp the willow tree base on the right side of your Orchid Oasis layer.
  • When it’s dry, stamp the leaves using Versamark ink, and sprinkle with gold embossing powder. Tap off the excess and heat until it’s shiny.
  • Next, adhere this layer to your gold foil, and that to the front of your cardbase.

TIP: Heat emboss only one image of a two-step stamp for a fun twist!

Create your Sentiment:

  • On the small piece of Orchid Oasis, stamp the sympathy sentiment using Black Memento ink.
  • Lastly, glue the sentiment to the small gold piece, and then glue this to the left side of your card front.
