A simple KISS Sympathy Card

KISS --- Keep it Simple and Stunning -- is a newer class I started a few months ago and is being very well received.   This is one from the last class that was a hit!

KISS Cards are made using one sheet of card stock for the card base and two additional pieces 2 3/4" x 4 1/4" or less.   It's a system whereby you have some precut pieces and quickly make cards from these pieces.   If you are interested in attending my KISS classes, please email me for a list of classes ...

This card uses a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of Naturals White card stock (pg 160) as the card base.   The two remaining pieces were Very Vanilla card stock -- one cut at 4 1/4" x 2 3/4" and the other is 3 3/4" x 2 1/4".

First, take the larger piece (of the two smaller pieces)  and cut out leaves using the Little Leaves Sizzlits (pg 191).   Set the leaves aside and emboss this larger piece with the Square Lattice Folder (pg 189).  

Then simply lightly sponge the leaves with crumb cake ink, attach to the smaller piece of card stock and stamp "With Sympathy" (Teeny Tiny Wishes - pg 133)  using soft suede ink at the bottom.  Slightly sponge this smaller piece with crumb cake ink and attach 4 dimensionals on the back.   Attach to embossed larger piece.  Then attach these pieces to the folded card base.   

The photo doesn't do it justice, but the beautiful specks on the Naturals White card stock make this one impressive card ... try it!
