Amazing Silhouettes ~ Sympathy Card


It seems like deaths occur more in the winter months than any other time.  I am sure that is statistically wrong, but it sure does feel that way.  Unfortunately, we never seem to have as many sympathy cards as we need.  My thought is that if you must send a sympathy card, make it beautiful so that the love can be felt.

The Amazing Silhouettes stampset is so simple, with just three stamps, yet it makes such beautiful bases for any sentiment- birthday, congratulations, or yes, sympathy.

Let me show you how easy it is to make this card.... then you can even change it up with different colors, paper or even step it up with heat embossing.

  • Cardbase: Cut your Evening Evergreen cardstock to 8½" x 5½", score at 4¼".
  • Cut your DSP (designer series paper) from the Ever Eden paper to 4" x 5¼".  
  • Cut your Basic White cardstock to 2¾" x 4¾".
  • Stamp the large tree centered on the white cardstock using Evening Evergreen. (For this you will need to use a large block and apply the ink to the stamp as shown in the photo.)

  • Then stamp the sentiment at the base of the tree in Merry Merlot. (The sentiment is from the "Special Moments" stampset that you can get free with a $100 purchase during SALE-a-bration.)
  • Adhere the stamped piece to the DSP.
  • Wrap the Open Weave Soft Succulent ribbon around them and tie in a bow, secure with glue dots.
  • Adhere the panel to the front of your cardbase. 
Follow this link to find everything you need to make this card. While creating this list, I noticed that the DSP Ever Eden is no longer available. If you drop me a message, I am happy to send you a panel as long as my supply lasts.  But you can also use any other DSP that you have.
