Stampin’ Up! Inspired Thoughts Sympathy

Good Friday Morning! I have a couple of quick cards for you today, both very similar and made with By the Bay Specialty DSP (retiring product!) and Inspired Thoughts stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Inspired Thoughts Sympathy #1
Stampin' Up! Inspired Thoughts Sympathy #2

The card on the left has an additional layer of embossed Basic White (with Cross Hatch embossing folder) behind the DSP layers. The left card uses Shimmer Ribbon and Festive Pearls in Silver, while the right card uses Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon and Classic Matte Dots. The left card is stamped in Gray Granite ink while the right card is embossed with White Embossing powder and heat set. Both use the Label Me Fancy Punch for the sentiment banner. The card on the left was made for a gentleman who lost his mother and the card on the right was made for a woman – same formats, just a bit different.

The card on the left uses Night of Navy ink for the sentiment (from Inspiring Thoughts stamp set) while the card on the right is Gray Granite ink. Both are stamped on Basic White with a layer of Night of Navy ~ and both have a card base of Gray Granite card stock.

The lighting is so different on these two cards! Go figure… I’m curious, do you have a preference? Do you like one card better than the other? I think my preference is the card on the left with the embossed layer of white.

Card cuts are listed at the bottoms of this post.
