Meandering Meadows, Softly Sophisticated, Countryside Corners, Sympathy Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a simple and quick sympathy card to share with you. Please read on to see how I made it.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. It opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top. It opens this was because that was the way the paper was cut that was sitting on my worktable. I'm trying to use up things that are sitting around for no apparent reason. 

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Mossy Meadow card stock and textured it using the "Softly Sophisticated" embossing folder. I glued that to the front of the card.

The image is from a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Meandering Meadows" 6" x 6" stack. I die cut it using the "Countryside Corners" die set. The third largest one was used for the DSP and the second largest one was used to make the Basic Black layer. I taped the two pieces together and then glued that to the front of the card.

The words were stamped a while ago and I do not know what set they are from. If you know, please let me know so I can add that to my post here. The words were punched using the "Double Oval" punch and the Basic Black scalloped layer was made using the same punch. I taped the two ovals together. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set in place on the front of the card.  And the card was done.  As quick and easy as that!

This was a super quick card to make and I REALLY like that DSP. There's lots of pretty designs in that package and I have no regrets getting it. And there's not one scene in it that I don't like. 

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

I like the way you used the dsp. It is like looking through a window. That paper pack is just beautiful!
