With Sympathy

I am sure I am not alone when I say one of the hardest type of cards to make are sympathy cards. In my humble opinion, a clean and simple design works best.

In keeping with the CAS design choice, I used the inlaid die technique for this card, using the mat portion of the
 More Ash Leaves Dies to cut from a stitched white linen rectangle cardstock piece. This piece was layered over rock candy cardstock. I then cut the top portion of the leaves from off white cardstock and blended iced spruce and bundled sage oxide ink over them using some of the smaller brushes from the Life Changing Blender Brushes. These were then inlaid into the opening spaces. Lastly, I stamped a sentiment from the versatile Fancy Life Events Sentiments set using Versamark ink, white heat embossed and then cut out with the matching die

Products: Picket Fence Studios stamps and dies, PTI and Simon Says cs, Ranger Distress Oxide and Versamark ink
