Rooted In Nature Sympathy Card | Tracy Marie Lewis |

I received some very sad news today. A family member who has been in poor health, passed away. I need two sympathy cards for family and they will be mailed as we are currently travelling. I wanted the cards to be masculine but elegant as well. For the first one, I chose to not use any embellishments as it is being sent to a male family member. In order to give it a bit of a stepped up look without using the typical ribbon, pearls or rhinestones, I chose gold foil, and on the embossing I added gilder's paste and some sponging. I love using gilder's paste when thickness is a concern and I wanted that classy look it gives. I like the end result! Tomorrow I will figure out the second card for this project.

  • Card Base - Crumb Cake  folded 8 1/2" x 11" (A2)
  • Mat - Very Vanilla 4" x 5 1/4"
  • Embossed Background - Soft Suede 3 3/4" x 5"
  • Ink - Soft Suede
  • Sentiment - Itty Bitty Greetings
  • Stamps & Dies - Rooted In Nature Bundle

I am entering this project in the following challenges:

SUO Challenge #204 - Designer's Choice

As an independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I am here for you. I would love to be your demonstrator if you do not have one. I have an extensive channel on YouTube with a large mix of videos on papercrafting and the full time RV life style. Fresh YouTube content is uploaded weekly. I seek out inspiration and new techniques by participating in challenges, blog hops and various demonstrator communities so I can bring you relevant content on my blog.

I actively use Stampin' Up!'s very popular Paper Pumpkin monthly subscription kits and create alternative videos each month just as soon as the kit arrives. Using my monthly host code will net you thank you gifts for every purchase you make. You can place your order using my online store, or feel free to contact me if you would like me to place your order. Don't hesitate to reach out should you need any assistance. I look forward to being your crafting angel!

If you are looking for a low pressure sales experience where you work at your own pace doing what you love, becoming an independent demonstrator is a great option. If you are looking to get a discount on Stampin' Up!s great product line you can become a hobby demonstrator. I am growing a non-location specific team of demonstrators. I utilize on-line tools to communicate and share business knowledge and creative skills as well as to provide a positive working and creating environment for new recruits. Consider joining the fun!
