Hi friends! Happy Fri-YAY! Well, every day is like a Friday when you’re retired! And the days just start running together and I may or may not even know what day of the week it is! Bahahaha! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m back this morning with the final sample that I created for the Prickley Pear Stamps Spring 2021 Release! I used the sweet Praying For You stamp set to create a sympathy card. I know I’ve mentioned before that making sympathy cards has always been difficult for me but having the perfect stamp set does make it a little easier!
I cut a standard A2 size top-folding landscape card base from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Baronial Ivory cardstock along with a layering panel that I ran through the Gemini Junior with a CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Die. I stamped the Praying For You image in dark brown ink, colored it with alcohol markers, and adhered it to the card base. I stamped the sentiment in brown ink, cut it with a stitched circle die and layered it on a slightly larger yellow stitched circle die cut.
I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Baronial Ivory cardstock and embellished it with strips of yellow cardstock, stamped the sentiment in brown ink and layered the panel on slightly darker yellow cardstock.
