I think this is the last card for my sympathy series. It's always good to have a few on hand just in case. We always wish we would never need them. Here is my card using Rooted in Nature.
I wanted to make a card that might look a little more masculine. It wouldn't have to be.
Start with a card base of Crumb Cake that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. Fold at 4 1/4. Stamp around the outside of the front with the leaves. I used the large and small one. Stamp in Crumb Cake.
Cut out a rectangle using the 3rd largest of the Rectangle Stitched Framelits in Soft Suede. Stamp the leaves randomly over this layer.
Wrap some of the Old Olive Linen Thread around the top of this layer and tape in the back. Make a bow to add later. Add the Soft Suede layer with dimensionals to the center of the card.
The sentiment is from the Dear Doily stamp set. Use the Stamparatus to set this up so that you get a good clear image. I did use Very Vanilla for this. Cut out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I used the largest circle. Add to the card.
Stamp the small saying on a 1/2 inch Very Vanilla. This saying is from the Dear Doily set, too.
Stamp a large and a small leaf in Old Olive on the Very Vanilla. Cut out with the Nature's Roots Framelits. Go over these leaves with Wink of Stella and add to the card. Go ahead and add the bow with a rolled up glue dot.
For the inside of the card, stamp two more leaves. This saying is from Rooted in Nature.
