SAB Sympathy Card


Have you seen the Sale-A-Bration stamp set, 'Heal Your Heart'?  This set is perfect for letting someone know they are on your mind and in your heart.  I chose to use this set for Challenge 494 over at Try Stampin On Tuesday

Everything on this card is pretty simple and straightforward.  The only thing that might require a little instruction is how I used the die cut to cut around the sentiment.  Once the die cut was placed where I wanted it on one side of the sentiment, I ran it HALFWAY through my Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine.  Then, I took it out and repositioned it on the other side, making sure it lined up in the grooves I had already cut.  Once I had it positioned correctly, I ran that half through the machine.  Perfect and easy way to make a die cut cut smaller.  

For the inside of the card, I used a 1/2" strip of the same Designer Series Paper that is on the front.  Then, added another of the sentiments from 'Heal Your Heart'.  

It took me longer to make this card than it should have.  That's because I kept wanting to add some ribbon, enamel dots or rhinestones to the front.  In the end, I decided sometimes easier really is better.  

I hope you are inspired to be creative today.  Happy Stamping!
