Nature’s Poem DSP for Sympathy Card

One of the first things I look at when I get a new Stampin’ Up! catalogue, is the new Desginer Series Papers.  I love this set of designer papers called Nature’s Poem.  It is great for masculine cards, fall cards, sympathy cards and more.

I made this sympathy card for a friend who, sadly, lost her mother.  The muted tones of this particular sheet of Designer Paper are perfect for this type of card.    I put the sentiment on a scalloped oval, cut from dies and the Big Shot (see the supply list at the end of this post for details).  I put a solid oval underneath the scallop, just to give it dimension and to pull thru the Crumb Cake colour.

The words are from a great set called Sorry for Everything–it is one of those sets that is good to have in your collection for when you need it.   I stamped the “Sorry”in Soft Suede ink and the “for your loss” in Crumb Cake ink.  In behind the saying, I used the co-ordinating stamp set to the DSP called Rooted in Nature.  I stamped the leaves, from that stamp set in Crumb Cake ink, but first I stamped them on my scrap paper to get a lighter version of the Crumb Cake colour.   This new stamp set, Rooted in Nature, is quickly becoming one of my favourite new stamp sets in the new 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! Catalogue (did you get your copy yet…if not, let me know!).

Around the edges of the saying, I sponged some Soft Suede ink to make the scallops stand out against the Crumb Cake oval underneath.

The final piece I added was some of the  Nature’s Twine.   I love that Stampin’ Up! has all of these products that co-ordinate together.   There are four different twines in this pack that all co-ordinaate with the DSP.   I used the Crumb Cake twine  for my sympathy card and I wrapped it around the DSP and card base twice and then tied it in a knot.  And then just a tiny extra detail–I  tied little knots in the end of each of the twine pieces.
