Five Sympathy Cards

Five different versions of the same idea.
This was a lot of fun, thinking of different ways
to use my supplies.

The tree scene is a stamp from a company called
Bear Rubber. I have no idea if they are still in business,
but I sure do like a lot of their stamps.
It was cut out with Spellbinders Nestabilities Ovals,
then layered over a slightly larger black oval.
A medium tan ink was used to stamp the "shadow"
image, using the same tree scene stamp.

The phrase was done in PSP X (as usual), cut out with an oval
and layered over a black oval. The above card has a
textured layer in craft colored card stock under the
tree scene and the phrase.
An EK Success Martha Stewart punch was used for
the viney leafy border.

This last card does not have the tree scene. I was
experimenting with the texturing of the craft card stock
and using the viney leafy border on the top and bottom.
It turned out reasonably well.
