Masculine Sympathy Card

Good morning friends ~ I'm so happy to be joining you for another  term with the  Dies R Us Design Team!  Thanks so much to Dani and Darlene for the wonderful opportunity to join their amazing team.  

Sympathy cards are never easy to make when needed so why not make a few when the sun is shining, the birds are singing and it's a good day!
I started by embossing the Frantic Stamper Sun Rays Quilted Card Panel onto white card stock and cutting another piece of white card stock using a Poppystamps Stitched Landscape die.
I adhered the landscape over the bottom portion of the sun rays and cut the entire panel out using an Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Rectangle

I cut the Impression Obsession Small Deer out of white card stock and added a bit of Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink around the edges.

Once the card was assembled I added a partial stamped sentiment with the larger Sympathy Die from Tutti Designs.  This is a great set of dies as there are two sizes included so you'll always have the perfect size.

Here's a list of dies I used that can be found at Dies R Us:
Frantic Stamper - Dies - Sun Rays Quilted Card Panel  Elizabeth Craft Designs - Stitched Rectangles  Impression Obsession - Dies - Small Deer Tutti Designs - Word Set - Sympathy

Don't forget to play along at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog for your chance to win a gift voucher to the Dies R Us Store.  A new challenge begins on the first and fifteenth of every month.  Be sure to Follow Us on Facebook too. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit
