Sympathy cards are never easy to make – at least not for me. This time I need one for a colleague who lost his wife. So an added challenge, a masculine sympathy card.
Since I wanted to create the card quickly, I decided to revisit the triple time stamping technique. This time I used the technique on the two largest layers using the pine branch from Autumn Days set (retired). I kept the smallest layer as the centerpiece. On this I stamped the solid tree from the Evergreen stamp set, wrapped it in a coordinating ribbon and added the “With Sympathy” from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set which I punched out using the word window punch.
I really like this design – it is fast and easy to put together but doesn’t look like it. The best part, this can be a go to masculine card, just swap out the sentiment. I like it when things work out!
