Sometimes simple is the way to go for a card and with sympathy cards that's the direction I usually take. Here is a very simple design using the classic Lovely as A Tree.
The base and stamped layer are both Natural Ivory cardstock. The Trees are stamped in Always Artichoke. The smudging was a happy accident as the ink didn't dry right away and I got my finger on the image and it smeared a bit. I thought I would go with it and just rubbed my finger over the rest of the image.
The sentiment is stamped in Elegant Eggplant and then I added a line of paper piercing. The image panel is mounted onto a layer of Sahara Sand.
Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
