Stampin’ Up! Touched My Heart Sympathy

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers. How is everyone’s week going? We’re halfway through and on the way to the weekend already. As of now they are saying it’s going to be a nice weekend, but this is NJ and the weather changes hourly.

Today’s card is one I really don’t like making. It’s one thing if I make them to have on hand, but it’s another when I have to make one special. One of my daughter’s friends brother died last weekend while out hiking in AZ. Dehydration and heat stroke they believe. Young man, only in his 30’s, very sad. I wanted to make a card for her friend and mother since I knew both of them, so here’s what I made.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Host Touched My Heart Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a Misty Moonlight panel. I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

I embossed the panel using my Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder. I then adhered a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to the top of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Misty Moonlight 1/4″ 2020-2022 In-Color Ribbon around the panel and tied a knot.

I cut 3 leave using the Nature’s Roots Dies, one in Bumblebee, one in Cajun Craze and one in Real Red. I adhered the leaves just under the knot using Glue Dots and then added a Glue Dot under the knot. I adhered the card front to a Misty Moonlight card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampn’ Up! Path of Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the tall tree from the Stampin’ Up! Rooted In Nature Cling Stamp Set in Gray Granite Ink, stamping off once, over the sentiment. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the tall tree from the Rooted in Nature stamp set in Gray Granite Ink on the envelope front.

I adhered a panel of In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my bog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
