Simple Sympathy Card

This is one of the cards we made at last Saturday's 10 Cards for $10. I case'd it from ChristineCreations, whose card I saw on Splitcoast. I knew it would be perfect for the class!

I embossed the tree image (from Thoughts and Prayers) with white embossing powder and sponged Pacific Point ink over the embossed image. Next, I took a paper towel and "buffed" the embossed image to get rid of any excess ink. I stamped the sentiment in Pacific Point ink on Whisper White scrap and punched it out with the Large Oval punch and layered it onto a piece of Pacific Point cs, punched with the Curly Label punch. I also added some Pacific Point striped grosgrain ribbon. It's always nice to have cards like this on hand, and these are a snap to put together.

Stamps: Thoughts and Prayers
Paper: Whisper White, Pacific Point
Ink: VersaMark, Pacific Point
Accessories: white ep, heat gun, sponge, Large Oval punch, Curly Label punch, Pacific Point striped grosgrain
