One design, three sympathy cards.

I posted a card in January that I made using a design inspired by Stampin' Up! demonstrator Michelle Wark.   I liked the layout and thought it would work great for sympathy cards.  Here is my take on three different cards all using the same design, just changing up the stamp sets and sentiments.

Each card has a card base of Bravo Burgundy and is layered with Very Vanilla and Wild Wasabi cardstock.  The Wild Wasabi cardstock was cut using the Top Note Bigz Die and then cut in half and sponged with some Bravo Burgundy ink, and then all of these layers were embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.  From there I just changed my stamped images, placing them on more Very Vanilla and Bravo Burgundy cardstock, and either cut them down to size, or used a punch to get the best shape.  Some ribbon and my sentiment complete each card.  A really easy way to get extra cards made, while still making each one unique.

The following were used:
Cardstock:  Bravo Burgundy #105123, Wild Wasabi #108641, Very Vanilla #101650
Ink:  Bravo Burgundy #105214
Stamp Sets:  Faith in Nature #122490 wood or #122492 clear (Hostess), Nature's Pace #122660 wood or #122662 clear, Petite Pairs #122495 wood or #122497 clear, Thoughts & Prayers #113252
Ribbon:  Rich Razzleberry 1/4" Grosgrain #120930, Very Vanilla 1/2" Seam Binding #120999, Hemp Twine #100982
Punches:  2 1/2" Circle #120906, Large Oval #119855, Word Window #119857
Accessories:  Big Shot #113439, Top Note Bigz Die #113463, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder #120175, Stamping Sponge #101610, Crop-a-Dile #108362

Great idea. It's like an assembly line but each one turns out differently. Lovely cards.
