Stampin' Up! Flourishing Phrases Sympathy

Hey there! Another retiring set I'm sad to see go is Flourishing Phrases and the coordinating Flourish Dies. It's actually one of only two remaining wood-mount sets in my stash, and the other one, Label Me Pretty, is retiring too! Wood-mount was the way all of my stamps were mounted when I started stamping 18 years ago. There were no photopolymers or cling-mounts back then, just good 'ol red rubber mounted on wood blocks! I was hesitant to convert to cling mount and photopolymer, but gradually I did.  I still love the feel of that wood block in my hand! Everything changes (except for the Lord who never changes) and now I love my cling and photopolymer!

For my card today I used Flourishing Phrases to create a sympathy card with Mint Macaron, Shaded Spruce, and a stenciling technique.


After stenciling with Mint Macaron ink on the Mint Macaron card stock, I ran it through my embossing machine in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.


I added a few Frosted Flower Embellishments to the greeting punched with the Label Me Fancy punch.


This set makes it so easy to create a sweet card for sympathy, wedding, congratulations, just a note, thank you, and hello!


So many of the supplies I used for today's card are retiring and will be gone forever after June 2nd, so don't delay!
