Super easy Sympathy card using the New Horizons Designer Paper

When there are birthdays, or weddings or other special occasions, we generally know about them in advance and we are able to plan to make a card for the event.  But when we need a sympathy card, many times there is no advance notice, we need a card and we need it now!  That’s why I created this super easy sympathy card using the New Horizons Designer Paper.

The New Horizons Designer Series Paper comes with 48 sheets of 6″ x 6″ paper, that is truly stunning. The only thing that is stamped on the card is the sentiment from the Celebrating You stamp set. Here’s just a little sampling of the pages in the package.

I started with a card base of Basic Black and added a piece of Basic White to the inside.  On another piece of Basic White, I used the Simply Score Tool to score lines horizontally on the card stock at 1-1/4″, 1-1/2″, 2-1/2″ and 2-3/4″.  I stamped the sentiment in Memento Ink and attached this layer to the card front.  Next I chose a piece of the New Horizons DSP and cut a 3″ x 3″ piece from it and mounted this on a       3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ piece of Basic Black.  These layers were attached to the card with Dimensionals and I finished the card off with a few of the Matte Black Dots. 

I am able to get 4 piece of the gorgeous prints from each piece of the New Horizons DSP, so why not create 4 cards at the same time to have on hand when the need arises?
