A Sheltering Tree Sympathy Card

Did you see that there’s a new kind of Whisper White Thick cardstock in the new Stampin’up catalogue (p.149)? I think this is a great addition to the “traditional” Whisper White card stock. The Thick Whisper White cardstock is perfect to make card base. Before, I never used Whisper White cardstock for my card base because I found it was not sturdy enough. But, this one is made especially for that! I still use the regular Whisper White cardstock for all my other layers that are added on my card, so it doesn’t make it too bulky.

For this card, I made my card base with this new Thick Whisper White cardstock. I used the beautiful “Sheltering Tree” stamp set. The tree leaves were stamped on my card base and then on my outlined image. I’ve seen that done on another card on Pinterest and I thought it was a brilliant idea! Overall, this is a simple card but I think it has a nice refreshing look!
