SYMPATHY AUTUMN DAYS!


For some reason I think of Fall colors when I am useing this stamp set, and this pheasant is just so versatile. Today I'm going to share this little Sympathy card with you.

I made a frame with my Big Shot Top Note Die and then sponged the edges of it with Close to Cocoa and Old Olive Classic Ink. I used a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock for my images, and I started by punching out a 1" circle and attaching it to my Very Vanilla cardstock (this becomes a "mask" for my sun in the upper right corner). Then I stamped my images in Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Soft Suede and Mellow Moss. I stamped my sentiment from Close As A Memory in Soft Suede Classic Ink. then I just sponged some Close to Cocoa and some Mellow Moss onto the cardstock and right over my stamped images. I removed the "mask" from my sun and lightly daubered some So Saffron Classic Ink onto the vanilla circle (for my sun). To finish it off, I popped the frame up with some dimensionals, and then mounted it onto a piece of Kraft cardstock.
