Hey, hi! I have another card to share today, made with products from the amazing Simon Says Stamp DieCember release! I would have liked to share it earlier, except that several of the products I used were popular items and sold out quickly but now they’re back in stock and you can shop the Linkdeli list below once more! And while I’ve used products from two holiday releases, I’ve used them to create a sympathy card! I’ve combined two different leaf dies from the DieCember release and the Handmade Holiday release and a mini slimline sized die.

I’ve combined a leaf die from the DieCember release – the Fine Textured Leaf die – with another from the Handmade Holidays release – Etched Delicate Frond – and the Mini Slimline Lattice die which I used as an embossing die, and with these colors and products, we have a lovely sympathy card!
I began by die cutting the leaves from watercolor cardstock then painting them with pale shades of green paint. I set them aside to dry and ran a mini slimline sized panel of more watercolor paper through the Platinum 6 with the appropriate rubber pad sandwich for making an impression on the paper rather than cutting through. I prefer watercolor paper for this because it’s thickness and fiber construction makes it sturdier than regular cardstock and less likely to tear or fray.
I die cut the Clean Line Everyday greeting from more watercolor cardstock, this time because I wanted a perfect color match, rather than for any painting purposes, then stamped the “with sympathy” sentiment and clear heat embossed. I popped up the sentiment with two more layers of die cuts behind and adhered all the layers to a folded mini slimline card base.
