Monochrome Sympathy Card

This is the second card I made for the current challenge at

I was in need of more Sympathy cards,
so I chose to use the center row going down on
their tic tac toe board:
sympathy, embossing folder, monochrome. 
It could also be one of the diagonals:
floral, embossing folder, die cut or punch. 

Supplies from Stampin' Up! 
Stamps: Elements of Style (2010)
                 Close As A Memory (2006)
Basic Black and Sahara Sand card stocks
Memento black ink
Subtle 3D embossing folder
black organdy ribbon 5/8"
stitched rectangles die (Stamps of Life)

This shows the texture I created on the front
using the embossing folder by Stampin' Up!
I stamped the Toile image first.

The sentiment is attached to the card front
with dimensionals. 

This is the inside of the card.

Thanks for looking =)

My card was a Top Pick at Retro Rubber !


  1. Oh wow - I'm loving the stamps that are coming out of your stash for this challenge, even if they are for a sad topic! This is a beauty but then, I'm a sucker for that lovely vintage look. Monochrome works so well for sympathy cards. Great choice to emboss the image - looks like the Subtle folder - because it adds such a stylish finish. Thanks for joining us again at Retro Rubber Challenge.

  2. Wow, this vintage feel is amazing. I can see this making a wonderful wedding card too. Thanks for joining us again at Retro Rubber. Claire DT

  3. Yes you did make another lovely sympathy card! The ribbon adds to the overall nostalgic feel. Thanks for playing along with us at Retro Rubber and our Tic Tac Toe challenge.
