Ribbon of Courage Sympathy Card

Create this simple & pretty sympathy card using Stampin' Up! Ribbon of Courage - Stampin Up Mary Fish

I typically prefer to use “love and hugs” when creating sympathy cards for good friends vs. something more formal.  The Stampin’ Up! Ribbon of Courage Stamp Set and coordinating Support Ribbon Framelits Dies are a perfect fit.

I love hearing from you!  Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.

  • I used the Layering Squares Framelits Dies to create a border that “intersects” the sentiment.  I’ll share a 1 Minute to WOW! Video Tutorial with you tomorrow with tips!

  • Such a versatile die set!  The sweet flowers are from Support Ribbon Framelits Dies.
  • Pick a contrasting bright color!  A pop of Pumpkin Pie in the flower centers (1/2″ Circle Punch) and to the left of the sentiment (Brights Enamel Shapes) looks pretty but doesn’t overpower the Night of Navy.

  • Yum! The Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon is the finishing touch.
  • Stampin’ Up! Thick Whisper White Card Stock is a fabulous weight for the 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card base.

    Mary Love the idea of this Sympathy card. I’d be interested in knowing what sentiment you used inside the card

  2. I too didn’t need this set until I saw your card. Now I do! The
    sentiments are great. Then I went to Susan Itells blog and you
    are both on the same page today. Same set with two very different
    and beautiful cards. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Mary Lou Glick

    What a beautiful card, Mary! I didn’t NEED this set until I saw this card!

  4. I love, love, love the way the square and sentiment intersect. How clever! I, too, love the pops of orange on this very blue card. Such a sweet project!

  5. Kadie in Arizona

    I have to say Mary…….You have BLOWN ME AWAY with that intersecting sentiment. BRILLIANT!!!!
