Loving Thoughts Sympathy

Over the past few days I have been seeing a lot of these cards so I thought I'd give the 'triple layered' technique a try and I added a fourth layer with the sentiment.  I kept the card simple without a lot of embellishment.  I used the Reason to Smile stamp set because, although it is a sad time when you lose someone, it is also a time to celebrate their life and let the memories give you a reason to smile.

Stamp Set(s):  Reason to Smile, Loving Thoughts; Ink(s):  Marina Mist, Midnight Muse; Card Stock:  Naturals White, Marina Mist; Accessories & Tools:  5/8" Whisper White Organza Ribbon (dyed Midnight Muse), Stampin' Dimensionals

I love the look of these cards.  My next technique will be making a stair-step card.  We'll see how that one goes.

If you like the exclusive Reason to Smile stamp set, you can get it for only $5 with a $50 order.  It is only available through the month of July so order yours' today.

  1. Pretty card, Marsha. I've been meaning to try this technique, too - I think it gives a look of "spent a bit of time" without the effort.

  2. Thanks, Kathy. I like the 'spent a bit of time' look without having done so. I've seen a lot or pretty ones in the Showcase.
