Fall Tree Sympathy Card

Good afternoon! I hope your week is going well. Mine has been pretty calm and quiet. Earlier today I decided to play around with the Mojo Monday sketch and this Fall Tree Sympathy Card is what I created. I'm hoping I won't need it anytime soon but it can be hard to make a sympathy card when the time comes.

All supplies except the gold brads are by Stampin' Up! Here is the list:
  • Paper: Whisper White, Early Espresso, Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler cardstock. Patterned paper from the Motley Monsters dsp (woodgrain) and retired Sweet Sorbet dsp.
  • Stamps: Lovely as a Tree and  retired Simply Sketched (sentiment).
  • Inks: Classic Stampin' Pad in Summer Starfruit and Sahara Sand and Stampin' Write Markers in Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso.
  • Other Stuff: Oval punch, scallop oval punch, paper snips, gold brads and stampin' dimensionals.
This card is entered into the following challenges:


  1. Nice card and would work really well for a masculine sympathy -- the colors and design are a nice reflection of fall and are very soothing.

  2. That's beautiful, Andrea! A wonderful masculine sympathy card - these are good to keep on hand. I really like how you did the leaves on the tree and also your gorgeous papers. You really have a wonderful way of combining your papers and the red really pops!

  3. Yes, I agree, you do have a way with combing your papers..lovely sympathy card!

  4. i love this kind of sympathy they create sympathy cards mostly in black and white...
    Last time I needed them, they were for my friend sabine, 46, who died of cancer on August 5th. And for her I did colored cards too! For a few friends...
    Hope you don´t need it the next time!
