Heartfelt Sympathy Card

Stampin' Up! Heartfelt Sympathy stamp set, Stampin' Studio

Do you have a hard time creating sympathy cards?  I think the key is to keep it simple.  Generally you want something a bit understated.  This sympathy card is great to have on hand because it could be used for a man or woman.  The earthy color palette of Old Olive, Very Vanilla and Delightful Dijon tie in well with the natural design of the font  intertwining with the vines.

Let’s Take a Closer Look

Check out the beautiful font in the Heartfelt Sympathy stamp set.  I stamped on Very Vanilla card stock then framed the sentiment with a circle window cut out of the Old Olive card stock with the Layering Circle Framelits.  This adds a bit more interest and depth, rather than mounting a circle on top of a square.  The Delightful Dijon Mini Striped Ribbon pairs nicely with the Moroccan Designer Series Paper (both of which are on the Retiring Products List)

Stampin’ Studio Tips

Measurements: Delightful Dijon card stock: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″, Very Vanilla card stock: 4″ x 5-1/4″ and 3″ x 3″, Old Olive card stock: 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″, Moroccan DSP: 2″ x 5-1/4″

Tips: To get the two toned sentiment, I stamped the image in Delightful Dijon and “stamped off” once before I colored the leaves and vines with the Old Olive marker.  Next I “huffed” on the stamp to moisten the ink and stamped it on the Very Vanilla card stock.
