Sympathy Card featuring Something Fancy stamp set

I always get asked for ideas for Sympathy cards.  I find that having a bunch on hand when I need them is best, so creating something that works well for any age and gender is the easiest for me.

  • Stamp the sentiment with Basic Gray ink on the lower right corner of the Basic White piece and adhere to the Basic Gray card base which has been folded on score line.
  • Emboss the Smoky Slate piece with the Metal Plate 3D Embossing Folder in the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.
  • Use the Dark Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blend to color the White ¼” Crinkled Seam Binding, then tie a bow in the ribbon and wrap ends around the Smoky Slate piece securing the ends to the back side with Stampin’ Seal.
