A Rose Wonder and Rose Garden Sympathy Card

I saw this elegant looking sympathy card on Pinterest using the "Rose Garden" Thinlits and the "Rose Wonder" stamp set. I found the original card here.  I didn't add the ribbon.  For two reasons, one I didn't have that ribbon and two it cost more to mail a card when there is a ribbon knot on it.  I tried to keep this card as clean and simple as possible.  And in doing that it made it super easy to make too.

I use my Xyron machine to put a sticky back on my cut outs. You just out your card stock in the front of the machine, crank the handle and the card stock comes out the back with a layer of double sided sticky attached to it. The back side had a protective layer so you can remove it when you are ready to set your image in place.  Before I bought that machine, I use to spray the pieces with some 3M spray glue.  And before that I used white glue and a toothpick.  I find the Xyron a much easier and quicker way to go.  I don't use it often so I don't complain about how often I run out of the sticky stuff.  I think it goes a long way. I do make sure my paper is as wide as the machine allows. And I keep the scraps because I can always cut more images out when I need them.

The words here are from the "Rose Wonder" set.  I stamped them using black Memento ink. I fussy cut the frame and I set it in place using Dimensionals.

It is very elegant looking.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
