Inspired by a card I got at Founder's Circle 2011, by my friend and fellow Workshop WOW presenter Dena Renkow, I made these simple sympathy cards (her original was a Thanksgiving card made with the Hand-Penned Holidays set, which I don't have--yet). Everything about it was awesome--especially love the scored frames, done with the new Simply Scored tool; and the color scheme: Pool Party, Sahara Sand and Certainly Celery.
Stamped on the rougher texture of the Natural Ivory cardstock, the leaves from the Gently Falling set look even more distressed. I finished mine off with a spritzer from the Color Spritzer Tool and a verse from the Blessings from Heaven stamp set. Hers also had a torn strip of the Spice Cake Designer Series Fabric as an embellishment, but I didn't care for it on a sympathy card. You could add a different ribbon as desired.
Thanks for the inspiration, Dena!
