With Deepest Sympathy


A sweet friend just lost her father, so I made this sympathy card for her.  It's an A2 size card, and I used the My Creative Time Fun Stitched Edge Dies on the ledger patterned paper from Echo Park's This & That Charming.  The sentiment is from MCT's Many Greetings stamp set.


This pretty frame was made with patterned paper from Echo Park's A Walk in the Park, using a die from MCT's Just Simply Live.  The scene inside was made with stamps from Papertrey Ink's Through the Trees stamp set.  I heat embossed the birch trees with white embossing powder, and I covered the red bird with Glossy Accents.  Before adhering my frame to the card, I wrapped some kraft hemp around it and tied a button made with MCT's Stitched Button Dies.
