For today's post, I needed to make a sympathy card for a special order so I decided to give it a go with some of my "Old School" cartridges. I used Jasmine and Serenade. Okay, so these might not be the oldest cartridges, but, I have never used them on my projects so they are "old" in my collection. I got Jasmine with from Craig's List a while back and Serenade is one of the first carts I ever bought! Shame on me for not using it yet! I hope this will suffice for an "Old School" project and I'm so glad you all stopped by to see my creation!
This was a super simple card to make. I just used cardstock that was in my stash and some Diamond Stickles, a Brown Zig pen and my Zig 2way glue pen. The background embossed paper was actually something I had received in a Craig's List (CL) lot so I'm not sure how it was embossed. I'm pretty sure I got the ribbon off of CL too. I also used some different colors of ink to add some more depth to the tree. I used the Colorbox cat's eye inks in an olive tone and a medium brown. This was one of the most simple, plain cards I have ever made, but I really like doing that for Sympathy cards and I am quite pleased with the way it turned out! I hope you all enjoy and have fun on the hop!
