Hello Lakeside Stamper Readers!
I wanted to share with you another sympathy card I made. For this one I chose the Lovely As A Tree stamp set. I just felt this tree from the set was a timeless and meaningful image to use.
I chose Chocolate Chip Card Stock as the card base. I felt it was a good warm tone to hold down the Very Vanilla Card Stock layer. Along the left side of the card I used a strip of Crumb Cake Card Stock and Designer Series Paper. I didn’t want the strip to pop too much and at the same time I didn’t want it to be too matched with the Chocolate Chip base. On top of the strip, I wrapped the new Stampin’ Up! Chocolate Chip Polka Dot Ribbon and tied a simple bow.
I stamped the tree image in Early Espresso Ink and colored it in using the Stampin’ Pastels and a Sponge Dauber. I layered the tree image on another piece of Chocolate Chip.
In the lower right hand corner I stamped “With Sympathy” from the Close As A Memory stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.
Thanks for looking.
