The stamp set with the envelope liner, is how I thought of the Beautiful Promenade set, page 107 of the annual catalog. The liner was definitely my incentive for purchasing it. However, since working with the bundle, I’ve discovered other wonderful things about it.

For instance, the circular, geometric die is amazing! Doesn’t it look like a bowl for my floating flower in this card? This was purely by accident. I’ll be doing a lot more die cutting with this gem!

Beautiful Promenade

 

And, How about the pretty flower and leaves?!  I love that they have dies for quick and easy card making.

 

Another great thing are the sentiments. Today’s project is a sympathy card, and the the sentiments in the Beautiful Promenade stamp set are perfect. I stamped “You’re stronger than most” on the front, and “…but even the strong need a shoulder to lean on. I’m here for you,” on the inside.

This picture also shows the die for cutting the envelope liner. The striped liner is a piece of Regals 6X6 Designer Series Paper. It’s nice to have sympathy cards on hand, and ready to send.

 

I used the Subtle Textured embossing folder for added interest, surrounded by a Blackberry Bliss border from Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper. The final touch was the three, little pearls.

 

The colors were inspired by this week’s Global Design Project color challenge.

 

Thank you for visiting my blog today. Remember, there’s more to something than the lining.
