Stampin' Up! Inspired Thoughts Sympathy Card


Welcome to the Happy Inkin' Thursday blog hop. You're in for a treat if you have never visited before. It's a weekly challenge and this week we have a theme challenge. Here is what I created for it...


and here's the theme...

I have made this fun fold in the past and it is so easy. I'm entering my card in Debbie's Creative Creases Challenge #32 - Anything Goes with a Fun Fold. Measurements are listed below. 

The New Horizons Designer Series Paper sets the scene on the panels and also provides the tuft of grass cut with the Horizon Dies. (I'm entering my card at Try Stampin' On Tuesday #556). The other tufts of grass are stamped in Evening Evergreen using the On the Horizon Stamp Set. The fences are cut from the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper pack using the Horizon Dies. The birds are from the On the Horizon Stamp Set and stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy and it's from the Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set. The stones are the Pebbles Enamel Shapes. If you look closely, you will see that I colored the horizon line with my Light Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blend to make it look like the ocean (aqua) and also some little pools of water. I thought some of the green dunes looked a little like a lime color so I'm entering my card at Color Throwdown ctd693.

  3. Karen, such a pretty card! I like how you used the die cut fences... sort of like passing into another world, which goes with your sympathy theme. The Horizons paper is so versatile, and love how you used it here. Thank you for sharing your card with us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday!!! -Donna
