I needed a card for some of my male cousins whose father passed away recently. When I saw a Thank You card featured in the catalog for the Rose Wonder stamp set I immediately thought that would be a nice Sympathy card. So with some minor modifications my card design was born. I especially like the touch of corrugated paper on the cutout leaves.
Cardbase: Crumb Cake Left fold
Accent layer: 4" x 5 1/4" Crumb Cake
Greeting tag: Very Vanilla scrap piece
Embellishment: Kraft Corrugated paper
Tip for stamping leaves. Turn stamp one direction and stamp close to the center and top of the accent layer. Then turn the stamp down and towards the center and bottom.
Tip for cutting corrugated paper: Cut on the flat side and turn the leaves opposite direction when cutting. You will need two leaves.
Layer over the stamping.
Greeting is stamped in Early Espresso and the outline of the frame is in Soft Suede. Pop up with dimensionals and offset to one side (but make sure the center of the leaf grouping is covered.
