When you need a sympathy card

Sometimes you need a sympathy card... 

Today was one of those days... 

So I wanted to share this card again.... I did it for Shoebox cards back in February... and it's just a nice card... so here it is... 

Here's the recipe for the card

1.5x4.25 whisper cardstock with D1544 Distressed Backgrounds burlap stamped in slate ink over it.

.25x4.25 twilight cardstock...  lots of colors would work as well for this card.... since the other colors are very neutral... 

.75x4.25 slate cardstock

Then add about 3.25 inch of half inch washi tape... I liked a bit of space in between the cardstock and the washi tape. 

Cut ovals using Art Philosophy (oval 3) the white one is 2 and the twilight one is 2.25. Stamp the tree from stamp set C1559 Always Grateful in the oval.  Also, sponging the edge of both ovals in slate ink adds a softness to the image. This image was also popped up using 3D tape.

Stamp sentiment in the bottom right hand corner in slate.  

Sometimes it's hard to know what to write... so I checked out this site and it was a big help!!
