OCCC: Verve Sympathy

The talented stampers over at Our Creative Corner are hosting a challenge this week. The challenge is to create a project using Basic Grey paper. The Design Team there is using old Basic Grey, but you can use any Basic Grey, really.

I liked this challenge because I am a Basic Grey HOARDER. (There! I admitted it!) So I wanted to use some of the gorgeous papers I bought a couple of years ago and never even opened.

I also wanted to participate in this challenge because Lindsey Botkin of Jacksonbelle Embellishments is giving away a $15 gift certificate for one winner! I love Jacksonbelle Embellishments! Lindsay carries all kinds of fun must-have things in her store and she has great customer service, too!

I needed to make a sympathy card for a dear friend whose mother-in-law just passed away. I find sympathy cards more challenging to make than masculine cards these days.

The card is 5"x6.5" and the base is Whisper White cardstock. I also used Bazzill cardstocks and the Basic Grey is from the "Oh Baby" Boy Collection. I also used Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Black Soot), Close To My Heart inks (Topiary & Crystal Blue), Making Memories crystal brads, Copics, & ribbon from Wal-Mart. The floral stamps are from Verve and the sympathy stamp is from Papertrey Ink.
Thanks for visiting!
