with sympathy...

Hello and happy Wednesday everyone!  Rosemary here today with a fall inspired sympathy card.  Sympathy cards are always hard to make, but the newly released With Sympathy stamp set from A Jillian Vance Design will help you make heartfelt cards with easy.  It is packed full of lovely sentiments and images.  For my card today I used the large with sympathy sentiment along with one of my favorite die sets:  Grand Leaf Trio.

I actually made a completely different card using the same stamp set and patterned papers from the Carta Bella Fall Market 6x6 pad, but discovered that a die set that I used on the card is no longer available from AJVD.  I was so bummed, but I still have a beautiful sympathy card that I can send off when needed!   I stamped the sentiment on some patterned paper with VersaFine CLAIR Acorn ink and then die cut it with one of the smaller Stitched Dot rectangle dies.  I then die cut another piece of patterned paper with the largest Stitched Dot rectangle die.   I used the smallest die from the Grand Leaf Trio and die cut three leaves from additional patterned paper.  I then used the stitch lines in the leaves to create creases that give the leaves more dimension.  The sentiment panel was adhered with foam tape to the main panel and then I adhered the leaves and little twine bow with AJVD Just Glue It adhesive.   Super simple, but I love how it turned out!
