With Love and Sympathy

  Hello Friends,

Today I have an easy to make, elegant, sympathy card to share with you.  This card was created using solid colored papers, dies from Dies R Us and a stamp from Dies R Us.  The focal die is from Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson and it's called Finishing Touches - Grand Vinery.  This leafy vine die is absolutely lovely.  I have used the whole die, but you can also cut it down and use pieces of it in any design.

Come take a look!

Card Recipe:

I began with a ivory card base measuring 4 1/4 X 11 and scored it in half at 5 1/2.

Next, I decided on the colors to use.  I chose metallic blue, ivory and a pastel green.  I decided to use an ivory colored flower from Little Birdie Crafts.

Then I cut my dies.  I cut metallic blue cardstock using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frames.  I took the inner rectangle and place it in my embossing folder from Anna Griffin called, "Matelasse."  This is a lovely basket weave design to add a little interest to the front of the card.  Using the Creative Expressions Finishing Touches, Grand Vinery die, I cut some pastel green leaves.  Next, I stamped the Lawn Fawn Sentiment, "with love and sympathy" using the Scripty Sayings stamp set in VersaMark and covered it in Copper embossing powder by Zing.  Then heated it up with my heat gun to melt the embossing powder for a raised appearance.  Next, I just cut my sentiment in a strip to go across the front of the card.

  Then I just put it all together as seen below.  So pretty!

Here is a photo of the Die R Us supplies I used for this card:
