Concord Sympathy

Hi stamping friends. Ahh, the sympathy card.  Within the last two weeks, between friends and friends of family, there was a need for this card every day!  Unreal.  I love the way this card turned out.  It's so simple, but elegant.  The colors are simply concord crush and whisper white.  The bottom border was made using the edglit die.  I cut a piece of concord crush 4 x 5-1/4, and the white was cut 3-3/4 x 5.   Evenly line up two layers at the bottom, and center them on the sides.  Place the die over the two layers about 1/2 up from the bottom. I used two post it notes to secure them so they wouldn't move (a piece of tape could also be used).  Run through the Big Shot.  Then use the Adorning Accents embossing folder along the concord bottom.  You must cut first, then emboss, otherwise the embossing will get flattened if you emboss first.

The squares are stamped in concord crush using one of the flowers from the Sale-A-Bration Fresh Vintage Stamp, then punched using the 1-1/4" square punch.  Stampin' Dimensions are used to pop up each of the squares.  The sentiment does not have to be sympathy.  There are some really pretty sentiments in the Loving Thoughts stamp set found in the Occasions Mini Catalog.
