A Sympathy Card

I have many cards but Sympathy cards are ones that I don't have on hand. I have tons of thank you cards and birthday cards but Sympathy cards...not so much! I made this card for a neighbor of mine who recently lost her brother to cancer. This was a super easy card to make. It uses one of my favorite punches, the retired lace border punch. All other products used to create this card are current Stampin' Up! merchandise.

From 1 November through 16 December, when you join the Stampin' Up! family as a demonstrator, you will get a FREE collection of Classic Stampin' Pads for $49.95. This is a great value! Joining is only $99! This includes $125 of Stampin' Up! product of your choice and $65 in business supplies.   
Being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator affords you so many benefits:
  • A 20% product discount!
  • A subscription to Stampin' Up!'s exclusive demonstrator magazine!
  • Eligibility to attend Stampin' Up!'s demonstrator-only events!
  • Access to Stampin' Up!'s demonstrator community, where you can interact with
    thousands of demonstrators around the world and find tens of thousands of
    project ideas!
  • A pre-order period to get your product 1-month in advance at a discount. I received my brand new Stampin' Trimmer 3 weeks ago during a special demonstrator order period and it is now available to the public.
  • An extra-wide 6-1/4" cutting base and an extended 14-1/2" ruler
    • The extra-wide cutting base provides a large work area and is marked in 1/4" (4 mm) increments, allowing for small measurements. 
    • The right-side grid helps you measure and cut very thin strips.
    • The extended cutting arm has a stabilizing leg to provide a sturdy and steady cutting surface for longer cuts. 
    • When fully extended, the extended cutting arm sits flush with the trimmer base, providing more accurate and consistent measurements across the entire surface.
    • The cutting base and track include a full ruler, incorporating measurements down to 1/16" and grid lines that mark each quarter inch. 
    • All rulers and measurements on the base are printed under a plastic cover so your measurements won't wear off.
    • The base has nonskid feet, which keeps the Stampin' Trimmer securely in place on your work area.
  • A full 12" cutting and scoring track
    • The extra-long cutting track has space at the top and bottom so you don't have to take the cutting and scoring blades out when you're not using them. 
    • The track gives you enough space to cut or score a full 12" (30.5 cm) without having to remove or switch out handles. 
    • The cutting track locks in place for secure storage or transport. 
    • The track includes an insertion point for cutting and scoring blade handles so you can easily insert handles into the cutting track.
  • Specially designed handles and cutting track to ensure straight cuts
    • The hook on the scoring and cutting blade handles keeps the handles stable so the cuts are as straight as possible.
    • Handles come in two colors: dark for cutting, light for scoring. 
    • The precision tip on the cutting blade allows you to pinpoint precisely where you're cutting.
    • The point on the side of each handle shows you where the blade will cut, making it easy to see exactly where your cuts and scores will begin.
  • Storage compartment under base
    • The storage compartment holds scoring and cutting tools such as a Bone Folder, Simply Scored Stylus, extra scoring and cutting blades, and even business cards. 
    • Separate compartments within the storage compartment keep your tools organized, and the clear cover makes it easy to see what you've stored.
  • Product details: item 126889; $29.95
  • This trimmer is just so awesome and I love it! It cuts like butter and is absolutely amazing AND you can get yours NOW!
