Card using "Thanks for Caring"....

I have had to make several "Sympathy" cards lately, and this is one I made using one of the stamps from the "Thanks for Caring" set. Sometimes less is more... and I am happy with how this turned out.
Stampin' Up Supplies used:
Stamp set -  Thanks for Caring
Ink - Marker pens - More Mustard, Early Espresso
Card Stock - Early Espresso, More Mustard, Very Vanilla
Embossing Folder - Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder
Punches - 1 1/4" square large punch (used at an angle to create the triangle)
Accessories - Paper trimmer, SNAIL Adhesive, Dimensionals.
Because I wanted to highlight the word "Sympathy" I used the More Mustard marker pen first and then used Early Espresso to colour the remainder of the stamp. Don't forget to huff (that's a very technical term!!) on the inked stamp before stamping it on the paper or it'll dry out and won't give you a nice clean image!


Thanks for stopping by today, more to come tomorrow. 
If you have any questions about today's card or you'd like to place an order, contact me on 07828 149666 or email me on lynne.fahey@gmail.com.
