With Sympathy – The Paper Players 333

With Sympathy Sympathy Card Ideas - Shannon Jaramillo Lil Inkers

Hello my friends! I had fun getting inky this weekend with a new challenge! I had an idea for a card in my head but when I was flipping through stamp sets I came across this never-been-inked set from Lil ‘Inkers and changed direction completely! I love when that happens!

The Details:

  • White card base cut to 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
  • Enchanted Evening card stock card stock cut to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
  • Pattern Paper cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • White card stock cut to 3 3/4″ x 5″

I used Spring Rain for the flowers and Soft Stone for the three random dots stamp that I used on yesterday’s card as well. I’m on a bit of a tear to “bash my stash” so I found three darling itty bitty buttons and attached them with glue dots.

And the inside. I forgot AGAIN to snap a photo of the stamping I did to the front of the envelope as well (insert mad face). Oh well, next time!

Today’s card was inspired by the Paper Players sketch…thanks Leanne, it’s a sketch with LOTS of possibilities!
