The falling leaves in the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper provided the perfect feeling for this sympathy card.

Nature’s Poem Sympathy Card

The Lovely As A Tree Stamp Set is carrying over to the new catalog, but Stampin’ Up has given us more trees and leaves by adding the Nature’s Poem Suite. I was excited to receive the suite in my pre-order, and share my first project featuring the finely detailed leaves.

I began with a card base in the “in color,” Fresh Fig. This was a nice background for the sheet of Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper in Rich Razzleberry and Petal Pink. I stamped leaves from the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry and Powder Pink Ink, and used the die from Nature’s Roots for cutting the leaves. I layered the DSP on cardstock, so it would be sturdy for raising on Adhesive Strips.

I used this week’s TGIF sketch for the lay-out. The five die cut leaves are placed like the circles in the sketch.

The sentiment, “words are never enough, is from the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set. I used the Petals & More die for cutting. I love the new twine that I tied around the top layer. It comes in four gorgeous colors in one pack. I untwisted the ends for a “leafy” look.

This new Triple Punch made it easy to round two of the corners for extra pizzazz.

Don’t you think these leaves are gorgeous? I can’t wait to see what everyone does with this suite!

Thanks for checking in with me.
