A Morning Meadow Sympathy Card

The hostess set "Morning Meadow" has been a favorite of mine since the catalog came out last summer.  It's too bad it has to retire.  I'm going to miss it, aren't you?  Retiring doesn't mean I won't be using it from time to time.  Some stamp sets are just not meant to retire!!!

I saw a card at Gretchen's website Inspiration in Action.  I thought it was so pretty but I didn't have all of the same elements as she had to make the card.  So I made do with what I had.  My words were done on the computer.  I didn't tie the ribbon in a bow and attach it near the words.  It just didn't look right.  I didn't have the die that she used to create the beautiful word area like she did.  I took a piece of scrap card stock and used the little banner punch, fed the card stock through the back side and punched each end.  Then I wrapped some ribbon around it and tied it in a knot.  I set it in place using Dimensionals.  It added an interesting look to the card but not too strange to look out of place.

The image was stamped using black StazOn and stamped on Whisper White.

This is a very simple card to make.  I really like "simple" lately!  I have not had a lot of time to look at Gretchen's website but I'm pretty sure there are more treasures on there!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
