Winter Woods, Itty Bitty Greetings, Sympathy Cards

I was still on the lookout for a different sympathy card.  One that didn't have flowers on it.  I found this fun layout and I thought I would give that card a try. You can see the card I found here.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Gray card stock.  On top of that is a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Whisper White that was textured using the "Birch" embossing folder.  I embossed it first and then I cut it. Sometimes when I've embossed paper it got smaller so I learned to cut after embossing.  I taped the embossed piece to the Basic Gray piece and then I taped those two to the card base.

The trees are from the "Winter Woods" set. I stamped them using Basic Gray ink. I die cut the second largest "Stitched Circle" and I also die cut a scalloped circle just a little bit bigger than the stitched one.  If I had been thinking I would have cut the scalloped one from the piece that I taped to the card base.  But once again my mind was elsewhere.  I taped the circles together and I set them in place on the card using Dimensionals.

The words are from the "Itty Bitty Greetings" and I stamped them using Basic Gray ink.  I punched them out using the "Classic Label" punch. I set the words in place using Dimensionals and the card was done.

I think it's a sweet card.  It kind of has a somber look to it.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,

I really like the simplicity of this card. It is elegant with just the right feel for a sympathy card. Thanks for sharing!
