CAS Sympathy

K's great grandmother passed away last week, so some sympathy cards were needed. I decided since this was a somber occassion, that I would forgo the embellishments and just leave this as a clean and simple card.

I must say though, that the first time I saw this stamp set (Paper Trey Ink, With Sympathy), I absolutely fell in love with it...and actually delayed my purchase (I have no idea why) and have now used this set for several upcoming projects I have...I am truly in love with this set! These leafy vines can be used for so many things and the floral choices in the set can really change the look of your project! Check back here in the next few weeks to see what else I have done with this Sympathy set (and it's totally not Sympathy)...thanks for looking ... recipe below as usual!

  • Stamps: Paper Trey Ink, With Sympathy
  • Paper: SU Kraft, Heavenly Blue
  • Ink: SU Heavenly Blue, Tim Holtz Shabby Shutters, Old Paper
