With Sympathy

A sympathy card made with Willow and Mat Stack 1 Collection and die set. After I stamped the tree trunk with Dark Chocolate from the Willow set, I used the Woodgrain Impression Plate on the front half of the Classic Kraft cardstock. I used a Mat Stack 1 die cut from Vintage Cream cardstock with the frame stamp with Classic Kraft ink and a sentiment with Dark Chocolate from the Willow set. The leaves are stamped in Ripe Avocado on Classic Kraft and attached with foam tape. I applied 1/4 inch score tape under the tree across the card front and attached Ocean Tides Satin ribbon (upside down for a more muted finiish) with pleats. On the inside I stamped another sentiment from the Willow set.

And because the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge is Dimension, I'm entering it there too

I was heavily influenced by Heather Nichols' With Sympathy post. In fact it was this post that made me buy Mat Stack 1.

Beautiful colors and theme for a sympathy card! The wood grain makes a very nice impact. Love your "wrong side" satin look, too!

someone will be blessed to receive this card. Thanks for sharing it with us at MMM. I really like how you pleated the ribbon to add dimension. =)
