IBSC #85 with a little Sympathy…


This is the challenge at Inspired by Stamping




I have created this card using the sketch and the soft stone colours. Always handy to have one or two sympathy cards on hand – hope I haven’t the need.

I used IBS Big Notes III stamped with SU Brown Sugar and distressed with PTI Classic Kraft to soften. I die cut using a Sizzix die. I layered onto IBS Fancy Label Dies 3 cut from Fawn la carte paper. I added a piece of SU Sweet Sorbet DSP to the store bought card base. The butterfly is punched twice – once in vellum and once in fawn cs using SU Bitty Butterfly punch.

I am also linking this up to the customer gallery.

Thanks for taking a peek.

  1. Always a good idea to have some of these cards on hand – too difficult to make when actually needed! This is a lovely soft card, Vicki and a great take on the challenge sketch.

  2. Beautifully crafted! The colors are soothing and the design is a perfect take on the sketch. Thanks so much for joining us at IBS!

    p.s. I too hope you don’t have a need to use this card 🙂

  3. This is so pretty! LOVE the monochrome colors–I know this will bring someone great comfort. Thanks for joining us at Inspired By Stamping! 🙂 HUGS! Mynn xx
