Everything Eleanor (page 30 in Stampin' Up!'s Annual Catalog) is a stamp set that has been in the catalog for a number of years and it is a well used set. Many elegant cards have been created with this set. It is retiring soon so I thought that I would give you directions to one more card, this time a SYMPATHY CARD.
This card is made using Whisper White Thick card stock but you could also use Whisper White card stock. The Thick card stock (page 149 in the catalog) is 100-lb. weight vs. the usual 80-lb weight (page 141). Having googled 'paper weight' I can tell you that it is a very confusing subject, suffice it to say that the Whisper White Thick card stock has more body and will maintain it's shape and crispness longer (if that is important to you). What I am trying to say is that using either will be just fine for this card.

The sentiment 'with Sympathy' is from the stamp set, Rose Wonder, and you can find it on page 18 in the Occasions Catalog. This is a simple card using two pieces of Whisper White. You will layer the stamped piece onto the card base using Dimensionals. You can easily create this card in a variety of colors with a similar sponged effect. If you do, email me your cards so I can share them on my blog ~ I know others would love to see what you create. Thanks for stopping by, Susan Elise
