Avian Sympathy

Unfortunately I need to build up my sympathy card stash, so a couple of low-key card making sessions are in my future this week.


Supplies: kraft cardstock; stamps from PTI; Brushed Corduroy distress ink; Paper Smooches kraft twine; scrap of HOTP printed vellum

Not really much to describe here - I just stamped directly on the kraft layer, and added a stamped piece of kraft over where I attached the vellum, to hide the adhesive, tied the bow, and ta-da. 


xoxo,
Jessi

I need to build up my supply of these too and this is so pretty I can already see a CASE coming on! Love this on the Kraft and the torn paper is so effective. Lovely card.

Hi Jessi!

Sorry for the absence...I have been beyond busy lately and will be travelling soon!

It is a very lovely card. I like how you made the fold on top and the vellum is a nice touch.

I noticed your photo changed! Your haristyle is totally chic...love it!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

That is a stunning card - I love the torn edge. I am sorry to hear you need more sympathy cards, friend.

And I love the blonde hair, hottie!!

Very pretty and, as you say, low key -- just right for a sympathy card.

Such a lovely sympathy design Jessi, the torn paper is perfect. I've definitely got to work on my 'stash' of these as well, they are not so easy...
