Sympathy Card



Hello friends! Today's project is a sympathy card. 

I started by creating my card base using a file from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons. I embossed the top layer using a cloud folder. The dove is also a file from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons




After assembling the card and dove, I tied a bit of baker's twine around the base. Using the NEW Short and Sweet Tags SVGs (that come FREE with the stamps), I cut the ticket shape. I then used the Short and Sweet Tags stamp set to stamp the ticket frame and the "I'm so sorry" sentiment. I finished everything off by tying a little bow and attaching it to the ticket tag.
