STAMPIN’ UP! ENVELOPE DIES AVAILABLE NOW!  I’m passionate about pretty envelopes and these dies have made the list of My Favorite Things for the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Mini Catalog!  Use the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine along with the scalloped edge Envelope Die, to crop a 5 1/4 x 6 piece of Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper. 

Adhere to the inside of the envelope with Multipurpose Liquid Glue

ADD A LITTLE MAILING PROTECTION!  Zip a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of Cajun Craze card stock through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine tucked inside the Tin Tile 3D Embossing Folder.  Place inside the envelope, layered over the card to help protect the embellishments.

USE A NON-MACHINABLE BUTTERFLY STAMP!  The postage on this Butterfly Stamp covers both the 1-ounce First-Class Mail letter postage (the equivalent of a standard Forever Stamp) AND the non-machinable surcharge.  Your hand crafted card (and all it’s pretty layers and embellishments) is hand-canceled rather than going through a machine.

    PDF did not match the Sympathy card and need to make a couple of these

  2. Beautiful and simple card Mary, just like all the beauties you create! As I saw this card it reminded me that I need 2 sympathy cards this week, so I’m giving this a go! Also, I didn’t know about the “butterfly stamp” for hand-cancelled cards…and I read that it came out 10 years ago! I’ve never had a card returned for more postage, but I’m more aware of the stipulations after reading about it at mystampguide.com Thanks for the inspiration and postage tip!!

    Not easy cards to make…..But you nailed this one my friend.

  4. Absolutely gorgeous, Mary! I love the offset panels on the face of this beautiful card. Love that you used this beautiful pattern for a sympathy card-perfect!

  5. The color choices you made for this lovely sympathy card are well suited as the colors are not bold but soft looking. I always feel sympathy cards should not be too bold in color but more muted. These colors are very soft looking even though the DS Paper is busy. This card gives me another one to make as I find it hard as to what theme I should use on sympathy cards. Thanks for sharing this sweet card.
