My cards today uses our “Christmas” paper pack – Yuletide.

  Yup – it’s from our Christmas collection, but isn’t this a GREAT way to show how we can think outside the box, and try to not label this as Christmas?!?!  J

The neutral colors of this paper are perfect for some Sympathy cards I needed to create. 

Ok…here are the cards I created…

I used two stamp sets….Be Still (retired) and our stamp set  called A Budding Friendship....a WONDERFUL flower stamp set!! What I like MOST about this stamp set – is that there is an already “colored in flower” that we can just STAMP into the flower!!

Take a look at the Stamp set….see the outline of the flower AND the “color” for inside the flowers too!!  I LOVE how quick & easy this makes it to create a project!!!

Take a look at the 2 cards, side by side, once again….did you notice that I used 2 different papers?  Which one do you like better? J

I love the subtle effect of the Honeycomb Embossing Folder at the bottom of the card….
