with sympathy...

Happy Wednesday A Jillian Vance Design fans!!  Rosemary here today with card that would be easy to create is several different color schemes.  I used the AJVD Simply Said: Sympathy stamp set and the little birds from the AJVD birch trees dies


I recently purchased a birch tree embossing folder and I thought it would be perfect to team up with the little birds from the birch trees dies.  I started by cutting a piece of light grey cardstock to a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 rectangle.  I stamped the sentiment from Simply Said:  Sympathy in black ink and then embossed the cardstock using the birch trees embossing folder.  I positioned the largest die from the AJVD Rectangle Backdrop dies set where I wanted it and then die cut the cardstock.  I did things this way to make sure that I got the embossing exactly how I wanted it.  The little birds were die cut from white cardstock and adhered to the embossed panel.  I added some Diamond Stickles for a bit of sparkle and then adhered the panel to a white cardstock base.   I will be posting this to the current Word Art Wednesday challenge of anything goes.

I love the beautiful simplicity of this card. The white birds seem to suggest a future hope in spite of the current struggle. Sympathy cards are difficult to pull off, but you pulled it off wonderfully.
