People Who Leave A Great Impression On Us

With Deepest Sympathy

Hello!  This is Cheryl.   Last week, I mentioned that I loved this Lace Doily (J101) stamp and had a lot of different ideas on how to use it. So today, I am using it again but in a bit of a different style. Usually I am scrambling to make sympathy cards when I need them. I never make them to have on hand. Well, I decided that this stamp would make a very elegant sympathy card and created this card for my stash.

I stamped the doily image 4 times on my DP and then cut out the layers. I assembled the various layers using pop-dots to add dimension.

Although I used a computer generated sentiment, Great Impressions has some lovely sympathy sentiments HERE.

If you missed my post last week, you can see another way to use this stamp HERE.

Don’t forget you still have plenty of time to join the January challenge at the Great Impressions blog. Use this fabulous sketch from DT member Erin and link up your project HERE.



Thank you for stopping by!   Have a great day!
