Make It Monday - Sympathy Cards


This week's Make It Monday Challenge at Papertreyink is Sympathy Cards.  Sympathy cards are ones that I don't have in my stash too often.  I usually only make them when needed.  For my card today, I used an old favorite of mine, Out on a Limb.  I stamped the branch in Burnt Umber ink and the flowers in Berry Sorbet. 

I cut a piece of vellum a quarter inch smaller than the focal piece, scored the edges and attached it over top of the stamped branches.  I stamped the sentiment on the vellum and added the white dots and glitter frame to the vellum.  The edge of the card was die cut using the Edger's 3 Collection.  You can find other entries for this week's challenge here.  Thanks for stopping by!  SUPPLIES USED:  Stamps- Out On a Limb (PTI); Ink- Burnt Umber (Palette), Berry Sorbet (PTI);  Paper- Sweet Blush, Berry Sorbet (PTI); Accessories- glitter, ScorBuddy, Edger's 3 Collection (PTI), white gel pen;  Finished card measures 4.25"x5.5"

This is simply lovely! The addition of the vellum gives it an ethereal quality perfect for a sympathy card.
