With Sympathy

 The ultimate “Thinking of you” card is a sympathy card. I hate to make one when I need one…I prefer to make a bunch of them assembly style…and keep them on hand for when one is needed. I used CutCardStock.com‘s FABULOUS Classic Crest Natural White Linen card stock-precut by the store in 4.25×5.5″ pieces…so handy and on sale this month. The card bases were constructed with Environmental Desert storm 80lb card stock. I used the exact same stamping and die cuts for every card…I just used different ink combinations. There are 6 different cards to check out… Thanks for stopping by…Lee-Ann Kubinec 🙂

***pan down to check out my pictorial and the recipe


 -Choose your card stock-Classic Crest Natural White Linen 80lb cover card stock, Environmental Desert Storm 80lb card stock(make an A2 size vertical card base…)

-Choose your dies, a 4×5.25″ stitched rectangle and a label die(mine are both from Jaded Blossom)…use both and cut your classic crest natural white card stock…add a full sheet of it to the front of the Environmental card base that you’ve made…so it looks like a cream card.(I use a Vagabond die cutting machine for my diecutting)

-Choose your stamps-2 flowers and a sentiment from Jaded Blossom. Stamp the sentiment onto the label with an acrylic black and Versafine onyx black ink

 -Choose your inks-I chose Altenew ink cube sets and stamped light to dark in a pleasing arrangement.

 -Add your stamped panel to the card front with ATG tape…or your chosen adhesive…add your sentiment label to front of the card with foam tape for dimension…I then added Nuvo Crystal drops to the centers of the flowers as an embellishment.
