Peace for your Memories

Hey there all my Stampin’ Nuts!

It’s been a crazy week or so!  But I wanted to show you a card I made. I made this card for a very dear friend of mine whose father passed away. Sympathy cards are always good to have on hand because you’ll never know when need one. I was able to make this one pretty quickly and despite the reason for the card, it was fun to make.


I used the Stampin’ Up! “Lovely As A Tree” Stamp Set and “Blessings From Heaven” Stamp Set, the colors I used were Crumb Cake, Garden Green and Early Espresso.

I used my Stampin’ Write Markers to color the oak tree in Garden Green and Early Espresso and I used my VersaMark Stamp Pad to stamp the leaves around the edges and give a neat watermark effect. I then used my Stampin’ Distress Tool to distress the edges before wrapping it with twine. I just tied the twine in a not and cut off the edges. I matted the twine and tree onto Garden Green and then matted those two layers onto an Early Espresso cardstock base.  I stamped my greeting in Garden Green onto Crumb Cake cardstock and then trimmed my garden green and adhered it to my card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping By!
