Try Stampin on Tuesday # 96

Hi there

I was in need of a couple of sympathy cards last week and this week's sketch went perfectly with what I had in mind.  They are not easy cards to make but I find this set (Lovely as a Tree) is a good one to use.

I finally got to use my Core'dinations card stock and Woodgrain Embossing Folder together - I love the effect the embossing folder has on the card stock.  I embossed the trees then coloured them in with watercolour crayons which I haven't used for a while.  I used my Sizzlits Lots of Tags die to create the label cutting one in Early Espresso and matting it behind the Very Vanilla.

Stamp - Lovely as a Tree, Thoughts and Prayers
Card Stock - Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Early Espresso Core'dinations
Ink - Early Espresso
Other - Clear Embossing Powder, Watercolour Crayons - Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Certainly Celery, Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Dimensionals

I'll be back tomorrow with another sympathy card using Blooming with Kindness.

I hope you're more prepared for Christmas than I am - I still haven't got my tree up!
