S is for Sympathy with Stampin' Up Occasions Alphabet
Today's card is one that none of us like to have to make but I do like this stamp for sympathy cards. The stamp is from Stampin' Up's Occasions Alphabet stamp set which is retiring to make way for lots of lovely new products in the 2014/15 Annual Catalogue (released 1 July 2014).
The sentiment was stamped on Naturals Ivory card using Early Espresso ink and then the Banner Framelit Dies used to cut out banners from Pool Party card & Designer Series Paper Stack. The edges were all sponged with Crumb Cake ink. The banners were layered over a Tea Lace Paper Doily onto Natural Composition Speciality DSP (retiring) - I love the embossed detail on this DSP.
The flowers were cut using the Big Shot & Floral Fusion Sizzlits (retiring) and topped with a flower from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack (Retiring and Sold Out). The flowers were popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals over a piece of Very Vanilla Seam Binding ribbon.
