Simple Bird Sympathy Cards - Simon Says Stamp and Memory Box

Good morning! Today I'm sharing a pair of simple sympathy cards combining a lovely Memory Box Die that I received in a bundle of products recently, and some beautiful sentiments from a wonderful sympathy stamp set from Simon Says Stamp called Moments of Grace.

We all know that sympathy cards can be some of the most difficult ones to make, so I love when I find a simple design like this that is easy to recreate! And this Perched Bird Craft Die is so lovely and intricate, that it was perfect for this design.

I die cut it twice, once from white cardstock, and once from the Sea Glass cardstock that is part of the Gina K Designs Simon Says Stamp exclusive Simon Says Stamp Cardstock add on collection - such lovely colors in that one! I then reverse paper pieced them together over a die cut Nested Circle covered with adhesive, so I ended up with two images, just reversed colors.

The first one I mounted with foam adhesive on a white cardbase, and then stamped a sentiment underneath with a combination of Smoke Dye ink and black.

For the other one, since the outline was white, I mounted it instead on a Fog cardbase, then stamped my sentiment with the same Smoke dye ink for a soft tone on tone look.

Since sympathy cards are always lovely to have on hand in your stash (somehow seems harder to make them when you actually need them), I love this simple design to be able to quickly put some together to have at the ready! Which one is your favorite?
