Urban Garden Sympathy Card

Here is a quick -10 minute card I whipped up at my Open House card buffet while watching the Superbowl last night. Yes, it is still all set up, I can't bring myself to put everything away back in the basement. My mother picked out all the paper, colors and stamps during my open house and I promised to make the card for her after everyone left. I ran a piece of 4"X 5" Urban Garden Designer Series Paper through my Big Shot using the Top Note Bigz Die. Next I sponged some Gable Green ink around the edges of the Very Vanilla card base 4-1/2" X 6-1/4". I adhered the top note to the middle of the card base then stamped along the top and bottom edge using the flower/branch from the Embrace Life stamp set using Timber Brown StazOn Ink. I then stamped the sentiment from the Close As a Memory stamp set on a piece of 1-3/8" X 2-3/4" Very Vanilla Card Stock and sponged the edges with Gable Green Ink. I stamped the edge of the flower/branch from the Embrace Life set on the very edges of the sentiment piece. I colored in all of the flower petals with a White Gel Pen. Finally I added some mini brads and adhered that to the center of the card with dimensionals. This is a simple and quick card you can make in under 10 minutes.
