Stampin' Up! Sending Smiles Comfort & Strength Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am sharing a sympathy card using the Sending Smiles Bundle. All week long I will be sharing projects using this bundle.

Tips & Tricks:

I kept the card design pretty simple and only used two ink colors. I used Tuxedo Black Ink and Sweet Sorbet Ink. I stamped the flowers and leaves in Tuxedo Black Ink and only the centers of the flowers in Sweet Sorbet Ink. I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black as well on both the card front and the sentiment strip.

I added the Basic White Cardstock layer to a piece of Basic Black Cardstock with a small mat layer. Then I added a little of the Black & White Gingham Ribbon around it and tied the ribbon into a bow before adding the card front to the card base. To finish off the card I added a few Basic Rhinestone Jewels sprinkled around the card.
