When a dear friend's mother died, I wanted to make her a special sympathy card, especially because my friend is also a stamper. The Big Shot makes these fancy cards so easy! I used the Rose Wonder stamp set and coordinating Rose Garden Thinlits to make this card. Although I could have stamped the frame within the cutout for "With Sympathy", I chose to cut the embossed words with the framelit and adhere it to a piece of Gold Foil. I then took my paper snips and cut a frame around that piece. I finished it off with a gold enamel heart.
I love that Stampin' Up! came out with the Die Brush with foam pad to make it so much easier to remove delicate cut-outs from the dies.
