Scored sympathy

The current challenge at Less is More is "Bring something back"  and I dug out this lovely old Penny Black stamp which I've had for about 10 years. I seldom use it any more because it is wood mounted and I have a rather similar clear stamp which of course is so much easier to position. But it is too lovely to part with, and perfect for sympathy cards.

I stamped it in purple ink and heat embossed with clear powder, then used my Hougie Board to score a double frame around it. The sentiment is stamped with an Anna Griffin stamp and I used a Memory Box die to cut the butterfly.

I am sharing this with

  7. A really elegant card Jane! That stamp is very beautiful. It's funny how some of our older stamps are perfect for CAS cards, isn't it. I love what you have done with this one.
