Sympathy Card for CAS Mix Up & Inspire.Create Challenges

 
Today I am entering this card for 2 challenges. The first is for Inspire.Create Challenge #51 with a theme of "Sympathy":
The second challenge is CAS (Clean and Simple) Mix Up Card Challenge for "Inchies":
Inchies are tiny squares which can be created & decorated in a number of ways.
I went with a very CAS design. Crumb Cake card stock with one stamped, embossed image from the Rooted in Nature stamp set. Since I was creating a sympathy card, I didn't want a lot of extra background images on the card. I wanted to keep it to a more masculine style.
I first cut a 3" X 3" piece of Crumb Cake card stock and layered it with another piece of white card stock the same size. This gave the stability I believed it needed. Using my Stamparatus with White Craft Ink, I stamped the tree image  a good couple of times. After cleaning off the stamp, I used Versamark and stamped it again a couple of times in the same exact spot. I sprinkled with White Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set with the #2 setting of our Heat Tool.

I cut a piece of Basic Black card stock 3 1/2" X 3 1/2". Next, I cut the Crumb Cake 3" X 3" piece into 1" rows and then again into 1" pieces. I lined them up onto the black card stock and put a Stampin' Dimensional behind each one to pop them up a bit.
The sentiment was white heat embossed onto Basic Black card stock using a sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings. It was then cut into a small strip and glued to the front. The whole Inchie piece was then layered onto a piece of Whisper White card stock which was textured with the 3D Subtle Embossing folder. Finally layered onto a Whisper White Thick card base in a square shape.

For embellishment, I just wrapped Lined Thread around 3 times and added a copper Leaves Trinket with Tombow Liquid Adhesive.
The inside was a beautiful sentiment from the Woven Heirlooms set. All very clean and simple.

Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you enjoyed the Inchie card even though it was made for a somber occasion.
