Sympathy cards are perhaps some of the most difficult to make. However, these cards, especially when they’re handmade, mean so much to those who receive them. The images and sentiments in Stampin’ Up!’s Ginkgo Branch Bundle offer just the right elements to craft heartfelt sympathy and thinking of you cards. Find this bundle on page 57 of Stampin’ Up!’s January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. Purchase the Ginkgo Branch stamp set and coordinating Ginkgo Branch Dies as a bundle and save 10 percent.
Ginkgo Branch Card Samples
In today’s post, I share a variety of card samples using this bundle. I appreciate the large stamped image as well as the die cuts to make something quickly. Be sure to watch the YouTube video below (a Facebook live replay), to see a variety of card samples and ideas using this bundle. (Hint: Keep watching to see some cards that bring in different patterned papers and sentiments from other sets.)
I can’t decide which color I like best: Smoky Slate and Night of Navy? Soft Suede and Very Vanilla? Night of Navy and Very Vanilla?
For all three sympathy cards, I used one of the embossing folders offered in Stampin’ Up!’s new Online Exclusives: Basics 3D Embossing Folders. Available for $30, the three-pack includes a flower design, hobnail-glass dots, and crosshatch design. The Online Exclusives include brand-new paper crafting products available only online. You won’t find them in any catalog. Stampin’ Up! plans to release new Online Exclusive Products every four months. Click here to explore the offerings.
