Leafy Green Sympathy Card

Soft green colors and leafy textures for today's sympathy card.  I like the many curves of the script word and the leaves, with a few straight lines.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) spring moss (light green), simply chartreuse (medium green), ripe avocado (dark green), and rustic white.
  • Embossing folder is Elizabeth Craft spring leaves.
  • Dies are WPlus9 folk art florals.
  • The sentiment "with sympathy" is from PTI communique sentiments, stamped with PTI limeade ice (a light, bright yellow-green) and simply chartreuse ink cubes.  On its own, the simply chartreuse ink looked a bit too gray or olive for this card.  Using the MISTI, I was able to triple-stamp - first with limeade ice, then (lightly) with simply chartreuse, and then again with limeade ice - for the exact color I wanted.

This is a very pretty sympathy card, Cindy! It has a peaceful feel to it with the soft green and embossing.
