Unfortunately, I've needed to send out yet another sympathy card.  This is the third one in as many months. 

For this card, I used my new stamp set Dandelion Wishes paired with the retired set Sincere Salutations for the greeting for a clean and simple design.

Sincere Salutations has always been one of my favorite greeting sets, and whenever I need a simple, yet elegant sentiment, I pull it out of my crafting cabinet.  It is one of my few remaining wood-mount stamp sets purchased when SU! only sold wood-mount stamps. 

Dandelion Wishes, I think, will become one of my favorites too.  Lots of possibilities with its simple design.

This card was very easy to create.

A perfect 5 minute or less card!

Here's how:

  1. Stamp dandelion image using Basic Gray ink on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock measuring 3" x 2 1/2".  With a paper trimmer, cut the image into 3- 1" panels at 2" and 1".  Mount each panel to a Basic Gray mat measuring 3 1/4" x 2 3/4" using Mini Dimensionals at the top and bottom of each panel to pop them up.
  2.  Attach to a 3 3/4" x 3 1/2" piece of Very Vanilla card stock using Mini Dimensionals on the four corners to pop it up.
  3. Stamp greeting using Basic Gray ink.
  4. Attach to 4"x3 3/4" Basic Gray card base to complete.
