Petal Palette, Itty Bitty Greetings, Sympathy Card

I was looking on Google for a fun card to make using the "Petal Palette" set and I found this super quick and easy card.  I inadvertently hit a key on my keyboard and the next thing I know the page was refreshing and I couldn't get back to where I was at.  What I had copied here was the Whisper White piece and the Basic Black card base.  

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock.  On top of that is a 5-1/4" x 3" piece of Whisper White that I had stamped the leaf spring using black Memento ink. The leaf sprig is from the "Petal Palette" set that will soon be retiring.  I really like that set and I will be sad to see it go.  Though I usually say that about sets that I really like and what ends up happening is that something new and better comes along and I like the new one even more and rarely look back at the retired one.  And that's how you end up with a room full (and I mean full) of stamp sets! You could use a full sheet of Whisper White and fill it with the leaf springs and have a "One Sheet Wonder" and you could get 5 cards from that one sheet.  I didn't do that because I only needed one sympathy card.  It does me no good to have cards in a stash, I always feel I need to make a fresh one when I need a card.  

The words are from the "Itty Bitty Greetings" set.  I stamped them using black Memento ink. I used the "Classic Label" punch to punch it out. I set the words in place using Dimenisonals.

For the final touch, I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White to the inside of the card and the card was done.  See, I told you it was quick and easy!

I'll have to play with that set again. When I opened up the case there were a lot of die cut pieces in a baggie in there just waiting for me to create something with them.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
