Lovely as a Tree Sympathy Card
Well, once again, I needed a sympathy card. I know, when is it going to end, huh. My friend, Linda, just recently loss her father, while we are sadden by his passing, he had a good long life and was one month shy of 91 years old. Now I saw a card similar to this one HERE. I did change it just a bit from the original. I didn't have any Cajun Craze card stock, so I made my own. How you wonder? Well, I started with Pumpkin Pie and then sponge on some Real Red ink with some Early Espresso sponge on too. Now it may not be an perfect match, but in a pinch, it comes pretty darn close. To make my mini brads black, I colored them with a black Sharpie.
Here is a list of the rest of the supplies I used, all Stampin' Up!
Card stock: Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Soft Suede and Early Espresso
Stamp set: Lovely as a Tree and Teeny Tiny Wishes
Woodgrain embossing folder
scrap piece of First Edition Designer Series paper
Oval and Scallop punches
Well this is all for today, hope you have a wonderful day too! Mary
