JAI35 - Clean And Simple

This week's challenge at Just Add Ink is to Just Add Sympathy, as in creating Sympathy cards.  We're all going to be in the situation of needing to give one of these cards, so why not have a gallery of beautiful ideas to help out?

My contribution is very last minute and very clean and simple...

I do have a pretty good reason for being last minute - we've finally moved into our new house!  I'll have pictures to share once we're settled and not negotiating a path through boxes...  :-)

I'm also entering this into the Stampin Royalty Challenge #37, which is to use stitching.  :-)

Stamp sets - Baroque Motifs, Curly Cute
Cardstock - Crumb Cake
Inks - Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
Accessories - White gel pen, corner rounder



  1. Nice, simple, quick and easy - gotta love it!

  2. Beautiful Danielle. WOW must be great to be moving into your new house.

  3. I love the way you outlined some of the Baroque and did the white dashes leaving the design free to enjoy! Great sympathy card!

  4. What a loevely card, love the balck outline, I suck at doing that, and always end up ruining my card!

  5. Danielle you`ve made a lovely card with just the simplest of elements well done xx

  6. Lovely, really CAS, just perfect for a sympathy card.

    Glad the move went well, looking forward to some pics :o)

  7. This is wonderful Danielle. Love the CAS approach.

  8. When I do cards that are this clean and easy i think its all wrong, but yet yours looks fabulous and not too fussy for a sympathy card. A great card!
