Simply Sketched Sympathy – Stampin’ Up! Card

Hello There,
Do you stock pile sympathy cards?  I find that I like to make my sympathy cards as I need them.  They are such a very personal thing to send so I like to customize them for the recipient.  Does that make sense?  I know we can do that for any card, such as birthday etc. but, I don’t feel as strongly about it as I do with sympathy cards.
While I’m on my soap box regarding sympathy cards, we should all be conveying our feelings of sympathy by mailing a card, not posting to facebook, sending an e-mail etc.  In these days of technology we have lost that true personal connection with each other that a physical card makes.  Don’t you agree?
I have a dear friend who lost her husband this week and my heart is breaking for her, I cannot even imagine sending my feelings of sympathy via facebook or e-mail to her, enough said.
Today’s card was created using the stunning stamp image from the Stampin’ Up! Hostess set Simply Sketched.     Put that image in front of a mountain in a meadow and you have such a tranquil scene.  The sentiments in this set have such a beautiful font also.
You can find the complete supply list below for this project and also how to the get the tutorial for this project free or by purchase below.

Mountain Reflection – Stampin’ Up! Card

Hello There,

I don’t know about you, but I am always so honored when a friend comes to me and asks me to make a card for someone special in their lives.  My neighbor, did just that.  She needed a sympathy card and one from the store just wouldn’t do so she asked me to create one.  I hope I filled that need with today’s card.

I pulled out the very beautiful Stampin’ Up! Hostess set, Simply Sketched.  Every image in this set is stunning, you can’t go wrong with it.   I wanted the card to have a peaceful feeling to it so I thought about what makes me feel at peace.  That would be water and mountains.  So here you have it, a Zindorf Zin card.

Of course, this card could be for any occasion, just change the sentiment.  That’s the great thing about scenes on a card, multiple uses.  I generally make my cards without sentiments and then add the sentiment inside when I know what I’m going to use it for.  :)

The supply list along with how you can get the tutorial for this Mountain Reflection card free can be found below.
