Unfortunately, some times we need a Sympathy card and it’s nice to have one on hand. This Sympathy card was created using a “hodgepodge” of leftovers in my stash…. but I really like how it all came together. I have used this card format for various occasions – “Happy Birthday”, “Graduation”, and just a “Hello” by changing the words and the greetings. Hope you enjoy!

A sweet but simple Sympathy card made with Stampin' up! products featuring the colors Early Espresso, Granite Gray, and Petal Pink.
For this Sympathy card, start with a base with Gray Granite cardstock (measurement: 8 1/2 X 5 1/2). Fold in half with the bone folder. Next, place the Square Vellum Doily (page 153 of the 2020/2021 catalog in the corner – I found it easiest to use Mini Glue Dots for this. The third layer is Petal Pink (measurement: 3 3/4 X 5). It is dry embossed using the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss and the Tin Tile 3D Embossing folder; attach with Stampin’ Seal. Cut the leaves using the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machine with the Forever Flourishing Dies (located on page 110 of 2020–2021 catalog). The colors shown are Petal Pink, Gray Granite, and Early Espresso.
The envelope dry embossed with the Tine Tile 3D Embossing Folder adds a special touch!
Next attach the leaves with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Then, stamp “With Deepest Sympathy” in Early Espresso and cut out with Layering Circles Dies. Attach the Gold Hoop Embellishment with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and attach the circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it a “pop”. Add “bling” with the Elegant Faceted Gems – please note that I give a package away to all of my customers with a $50.00 order!
You can also emboss the flap of the envelope with the Tin Tile 3D Embossing folder. #NoNakedEnvelopes. It adds such a special touch! If you have any questions about how to make this card, please feel free to email me – I’d love to help you with your creative journey! 🙂

Please note that some of these products are on the “Last Chance Products” list; they can be discontinued once Stampin’ Up! runs out of stock. The good news is some of the products are on sale! 🙂 “Last Chance Products” on this card include: The Gold Hoop Embellishments (10% off) and the Tin Tile 3D Embossing folder. If you love these items as much as I do, please purchase ASAP before they are gone! As of today, you can still get these items, but I can not guarantee how much longer they will be available.
