A Simple Sympathy Card with Sheltering Tree Stamp Set

Sheltering Tree Embossed Sympathy

 

Stamp Set – Sheltering Tree, Thoughts & Prayers
Ink – Pear Pizzaz, So Saffron, Tip Top Taupe
Cardstock – Tip Top Taupe, Whisper White
Accessories – Versamark, Embossing Buddy, Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, Heat Tool, Snail Adhesive

I turned this thinking of you card into a sympathy card by stamping a sentiment from the “Thoughts & Prayers” stamp set inside the card.  Actually, I heat embossed the sentiment inside the card with the Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder; it matches the embossed tree on the front of the card.

I always like to have sympathy cards on hand.  When I need a sympathy card, I’m not usually in the mood to stamp.   I just want to select a card from my stash and put it in the mail.

Nothing fussy about this card!  Perfect for the guys in your life.

I like the interest created using the Typeset Designer Series Paper without the pattern of the paper overpowering the card.  The bottom edge of the paper was hand torn to keep with the vintage feel of the stamped image.

Other images included in the Traveler stamp set include a ship, camera, luggage, passport, and globe.  These make it a great set to use when you are scrapbooking vacations!

CHANCE TO WIN!:  Where are your travel plans taking you this summer?  I’d love to hear from you – just leave a comment telling me a bit about your summer plans.  I’ll send one lucky reader sample sheets of Typeset Designer Series Paper.  (Mailing in the USA only).  Offer ends July 18th, 2015.

Thanks for stopping by.

Traveler for PPA 259

The Traveler stamp set was a perfect choice to use with the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge.  For many of us, summer is a time of travel and vacations.

I used the “Joy Fold” for this card – something a bit different than the standard fold.  The globe is popped up with a dimensional so the corner can be tucked under which keeps the card closed.
