The Nature Trees stamp set really is a must have. Unfortunately, I needed to make a sympathy card this week and immediately reached for this set. I don't like to add a lot of bright colors or 'bling' for sympathy cards so this card has a neutral palette. The base of the card is Banana Cream card stock layered with Cocoa Powder card stock and Buttercream card stock. The larger layer of Buttercream is stamped with the Script background stamp - I inked it in Banana Cream ink and added just a touch of Cocoa Powder ink in one corner. I layered the same colors of card stock in the same order for the focal image and stamped the tree from Nature Trees in Cocoa Powder ink and the background from the same stamp set in Banana Cream ink. I popped the whole center piece up with Journey Foam Squares. I love the font for the 'With Sympathy' stamp - it came from the Little BIG Greetings stamp set. Finally, I embellished with Journey Glaze on the tree and tied a pretty bow in Banana Cream satin ribbon.
I have been stamping for 14 years and am thrilled to be one of the first Fun Stampers Journey Coaches in Ohio. It was my honor to serve on the 2016-2017 Leadership Team for Fun Stamper's Journey.
