They are never easy. However, the comfort a handmade sympathy card offers means so much more. Sorry, Hallmark! This simple card incorporates one of my favorite looks–Whisper White embossed card stock layered over a Whisper White card base. It's beautiful for weddings, too.
DON'T MISS details on the new Stampin' Up! Love Filled Promotion below! Starts Dec. 17.
STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:
- The Stampin' Up! Word Play stamp set gets excellent mileage. I love the mix of fonts and bold look.
- Get your brads to line up at attention. I use a Paper Piercing Tool and the Stampin' Up! Mat Pack Piercing Template to pop in perfectly spaced holes.
- Layering two Whisper White layers for the sentiment gives a elegant faux embossed look, especially with the combined 3-D effect of Stampin' Dimensionals.
- Need more ideas for sympathy and get well cards? CLICK to see my previous posts and samples. Note this category is always available on my left side bar under "Sympathy."
