Paper Trunk Tuesday
I have been making far too many Sympathy cards lately. I don't think it was long ago that I had posted a few. I am torn about how I feel about making them. Part of me doesn't like it because what they represent, yet I think that if they bring a sense of comfort to the receiver, then that is definitely a good thing!
I thought this Designer Paper would make a good background for the Tree image. I just purchased this Thoughts and Prayers Stamp set from SU! recently because I have been making so many Sympathy cards. I used both sides of the paper, which is Alluring, from the Paper Trunk Batik Collection. I mounted this on a base of Burgandy Cardstock.
I used the Really Large Oval punch, along with the new Scalloped Oval from Stampin up!
Really, these were fairly simple cards to put together, but I think they they are quite subdued and elegant................
See you tomorrow, with something more cheerful
