Meandering Meadows, Heartfelt Hexagon, Sympathy Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I'm in the need of a sympathy card. I don't need it till the weekend but I want to get it done early so I'm not rushing at the last minute because I forgot. Please read on to see how I made today's super quick and easy card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. It opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

The image is from the "Meandering Meadows" 6" x 6" stack. I cut the piece 3" x 3".  

Next I cut a piece of Basic Black card stock that measures 3-1/8" x 3-1/8". I taped the two pieces together and then taped that to the front of the card. I often use a small dot of tape to the center of the piece so I can see where the words will be going. If I tape the entire piece in place I am pretty sure I will somehow smudge the piece and then I need to try to remove the taped piece. So I just give it a little tape to hold it so I can see where the words go and then after stamping I affix the layers in place.

The words are from the "Heartfelt Hexagon" set and were stamped using black Memento ink. And that was it. Super easy. Super quick. And pretty too!

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's sympathy card,

That paper and layout make a very beautiful sympathy card. Sorry you need one. We are in need of a couple of them, too.

Your card is just right for a sympathy card. The dsp presents a very calming scene. So glad I got that paper. I might be working with that today myself.
