My daughter-in-law, Tara is in charge of a program at Vanderbilt that provides comfort supplies to the end of life patients in the hospital. One of the items they are looking for are nice, homemade bereavement cards to send to the families. I was wondering if any of you are willing to send as many sympathy cards as you can to help out her program. If you can only send one, that is fine. She would appreciate anything you could do. If you have friends, family, downline, customers, etc that stamp, would you mind asking them too? If you can send them with an envelope, that would be great but if not, I will donate a bunch of envelopes to help out.
Please send them to:

Thanks so much for your consideration.
One of my favorite things that Stampin’ Up!® does lately is to make dies that cut out some of the designs in Designer Series Paper. The Hues Of Happiness Suite includes the stamp set called Happiness Abounds, Coordinating Blossoming Happiness Dies, Hues Of Happiness Designer Series Paper and Glossy Dots. Some of the dies in this suite cut out the leaves and flowers in the DSP. It is a fun way to way to make a card when you don’t have a lot of time.
To make this card, I first cut out the various flowers and leaves using the dies. Then, I cut out the frame from the Framed Florets die set in Basic White cardstock. I layered the frame, flowers and leaves on a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Basic White card stock that I had first embossed using the Gingham embossing folder and then onto a Basic White card base. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark Ink and heat embossed it using Gold embossing powder. Lastly, I added some Gold Adhesive Backed Swirls (which have sold out and therefore, are not available).
This is so pretty, Susan! I love all the texture and that the dies cut images from the DSP. Tara is quite awesome. This is such a sweet project.
