If you want a professional-looking Sympathy Card, the Artistically Asian stamp set from Stampin’ Up! will give you beautiful results! This card is so simple, yet it can easily transport the viewer to a place of serene comfort. You’ll just want to relax, breathe, and take a moment to enjoy the quiet when you see it!
The sincere sentiment is perfect when someone needs to know they’re not alone. The misty mountains are a beautiful backdrop for the bamboo images and are reminiscent of Chinese and Japanese landscape paintings.
The colors used in this card are Sahara Sand, Soft Suede, and just a hint of Soft Sky. I went into my stash of now retired Textured Cardstock from Stampin’ Up!, as I wanted this to look like it was painted on fabric or old paper. The design uses a lot of sponging for both depth and texture.
Leave a comment and let me know if you’d like to see a video on creating the mountains. It’s super simple, and so effective!
This is one of those stamp sets I know I’ll use over and over. The sentiments in the set are so versatile, you’ll use them for sympathy, friendship, and thank you cards. You can see other samples made with this set in these two posts: Folded Screen Card and Sympathy Card.
