Vintage Leaves Sympathy Card

Today marks fifteen years since the attacks on 9/11 and eighteen years since my grandfather passed away. Although time has passed the heartache is still real for those who lost loved ones. In remembrance of this day I made this Vintage Leaves Sympathy Card.

To make this card I used the sketch from Create with Connie and Mary, CCMC423. All supplies for this card are by Stampin' Up! and at this time they are all still available. Here is the supply list:
  • Paper: Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Pool Party cardstock, along with the Serene Scenery designer series paper stack.
  • Stamps: Vintage Leaves and Flourishing Phrases.
  • Inks & Coloring: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, VersaMark and Copper embossing powder.
  • Other Stuff: Big Shot, Brick Wall embossing folder, Flourish Thinlits, Heat Gun, Linen Thread and dimensionals.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
