Hello Stampers!

Lately, I’ve had to send out a few sympathy cards and this is one I made a couple of months ago.  Sympathy cards seem to be one of the hardest to make, and no one likes making them but we all need them.  It’s good to make a handful of these cards at one time, so when the time comes, you have it ready to do.

I made this card with Soft Sky, Basic Gray and Whisper White cardstock.  The stamp set that I used is called:  Thoughts and Prayers and it’s retiring along with the Soft Sky cardstock on May 31st. Retiring products are available while supplies last.

I added a soft sky panel to the front flap of the card that I embossed with the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

I punched the moon out from a post it note with the 1 1/4″ punch.  I attached the post it note to the small piece of white cardstock and very lightly sponged around it with soft sky classic ink to get the effect of a sky, and when you peel off the post it note, you also have a moon.  I used Basic Gray classic ink to stamp the tree and the greeting.


I used the same tree for the inside layer, but I turned the stamp on its side and only stamped the top portion of the tree.  Both the tree and the sentiment were stamped with Basic Gray ink.
