Unfortunately, we all need Sympathy cards on hand, sometimes more often than others. My Beautiful Autumn Sympathy card would probably fit your needs from September through March. Here’s how I created it.
The stamp set A Little Lace has this really pretty border stamp included. With the leaves included in the design it paired nicely with the Beautiful Autumn Designer Series paper. I stamped it using my Stamparatus on each end of the card front using Versamark then heat embossed with Gold powder. My stamp class also made this card and they used Copper powder and I think it looked even better than the gold.
My go to stamp set for sentiments all year long has been Peaceful Moments. This was introduced back in the Jan – June mini catalog as part of the Poppy Parade suite. It just seems to have the sentiment and size I need. Thank-you SU! I stamped it using Early espresso then cropped it out with a Tasteful Labels Die. I also cropped out the small early espresso label. I played around a lot with where exactly to put these elements before I finally thought it looked right.
Again, I love this color combination for Beautiful Autumn cards. This Beautiful Autumn Sympathy card could be used even in the spring by stamping the maple leaves in mint macaron instead.
