CARD: Winter Woods Sympathy

Good afternoon, or at least it's afternoon in Hamilton, Ontario.  One of my team members recently experienced a loss and as I sat writing out a sympathy card for her, I thought I'd share such a card today.  While the card featured today isn't the one I sent (she wouldn't have received it yet, so I don't want to spoil it), it would have done the job nicely.

Today's project is another CASE the catalogue project.  Featured on page 70, this card uses what many would consider a holiday stamp set, Winter Woods.  However, today's card, shows the versatility of the set to be more than what is perceived.

I love the simple elegance of this card.  The Basic Black background is a standard quarter-fold, 5 1/2" 4 1/4".  A Mint Macaron layer measures 5" x 3 3/4" and the Shimmery White cardstock is cut to 4 3/4" x 3 1/2".  Using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamp the trees.  Next use an Aqua Painter and Mint Macaron re-inker or classic ink pad to colour the back ground and let dry.  On a separate piece of the Shimmery white stamp the trees once again.  Punch out a piece of plain Shimmery White using the Tailored Tags punch.  Next  punch out the trees.  In order to get a border around them, you may want to use your paper trimmer or snips to cut off 1/8" all the way around.  Stamp the sentiment in Mint Macaron and cut out using your Paper Snips.  Adhere this to the trees using Snail.  Use Stampin' Dimensionals to pop the tags off the card base and you're done.  Simple and gorgeous.

I hope you enjoyed today's project, even if it's more somber.  To purchase any of the items demonstrated here today, simply click on the images below to be taken directly to that product.  When you shop with me, all orders of $25 or more automatically receive my Top 6 Card Designs PDF at no additional charge.  Additional benefits can be found on my Rewards page.
