I needed a sympathy card for a special person lost to soo. He loved the outdoors and I knew this Grove die cut set was going to be perfect, complete with the deer. He loved to hunt had a love of the nature. This card is so simple and peaceful. I love to add texture to my cards, not needed here, but I added linen thread around the top of the card. I love the detail in the die cut and the New Horizon DSP paper is breath taking! Nature is beautiful and this Designer Series Paper reflects the beauty of the earth. Simple cards are always best in my book! Quick and done and yet, everyone is amazed at your work!

I used the Special Moments “with Sympathy” greeting. This greeting set is one of my favorites and will be gone soon! Only 7 more days of Sale-a-bration left in Stampin Up till next fall.

I love to add Designer Series paper to my envelopes.
Use a strip of DSP for the inside of the card too. Great way to bring the outside of the card into the card.

This card is so simple and quick. Cut a Evening Evergreen 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and score at 4 1/4″

Cut a Crumb Cake 5 5/8″ x 4 1/8″ and Evening Evergreen cut to 5 1/4″ x 4″ die cut this with Grove die cut and cut a DSP to same size 5 1/4″ x 4″, Die cut 2 Crumb Cake deer.

Layer the die cut piece on the DSP and adhere with Multipurpose glue and wrap the top with Linen Thread 3 times and knot off.

Stamp Greeting in Evening Evergreen ink between the trees. Add the deer tucking one in the trees and one in front with your glue. Use Stampin Dimensionals to pop up and mount on the cut Crumb Cake piece and adhere this to the card base.

Layer a 5 1/4 x 4″ Basic White inside card and adhere a strip of 1/2″ x 4″ DSP to the left side of the Basic White.

This is another one I was playing with using the Beauty of the Earth DSP paper pack, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Early Expresso for the deer. Card base is Misty Moonlight. I think the greeting really stands out here too. I used the Stitched Rectangle die cuts for the label. I did use mini Stampin Dimensionals on the deer if you can see he is popping out of the trees.
