Card Chatter—Sympathy Card

I created this sympathy card before I was aware that the Card Chatter—Sympathy stamp set would be returning for Stamptacular.

card created with Card Chatter—Sympathy
To create the oval aperture in the Beautiful Friendship paper I used two centering rulers to help me position the die then I used iCraft Removable Purple Tape to hold the die in place as I ran it though the machine. I then attached the Bashful cardstock to the back of the Beautiful Friendship paper (at the edges), centered a smaller die on the Bashful card, used the Purple Tape to hold the die in place and cut.

All supplies are from Close To My Heart except where noted:
  • My Acrylix™ Stamp + Thin Cut: Card Chatter—Sympathy (D1476), Take Heart (C1639)
  • Patterned Paper: Beautiful Friendship (retired)
  • Cardstock: Bashful (retired)
  • Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pads: Heather (retired), Bashful (retired)
  • White Cards & Envelopes Value Pack (X254)
  • Die-cutting & Embossing Machine (HB1080, available with Hostess Rewards, see page 4 of Close To My Heart Core Products or Party with Us!)
  • Supplies not from Close To My Heart: Tim Holtz Stamp Platform, Tattered Lace Foundation 9 Fancy Ovals, iCraft Removable Purple Tape
The next time you need a sympathy card I hope you will find some inspiration from my card. I hope you have an easy time making it though "hump day"; I know today will be a busy day in my office, but we will be closer to the weekend. I'm looking forward to it.
