Soft Embossed Sympathy Card

Karen here and today I am sharing a sympathy card I made with some Crackerbox Palace stamps and Clarity Stencil Brushes. I am loving the subtle soft look that is so easy to achieve with the Clarity brushes and ink. I heat embossed Crackerbox Palace’s beautiful rose bouquet with white embossing powder in the center of my card front. I applied a strip of temporary tape on all four sides for a mask and then used a Clarity Stencil Brush to bring in soft color in the rectangle opening around the roses. After I removed the temporary tape strips, I applied just a little pink around the edges of the card front to soften those as well. I stamped CBP’s “With Sympathy” to complete the front of the card. I also stamped one of my favorite Crackerbox Palace sentiments on the inside of the card:

The Clarity Stencil Brushes are available at Crackerbox Palace on line, but the website is in transition right now. You can find out more about them by calling the store at 608-755-4638 or emailing them at

Love You to the Moon and Back Tri-Fold Card

Karen here and today I am sharing a tri-fold card I made with some new Crackerbox Palace stamps. I have always loved the saying “I love you to the moon and back” and was happy that CBP has it for sale along with the moon and stars stamps. I folded a long card in thirds, punched a circle out of the top and added a punched row of stars along the bottom of the front of the card. I did all the stamping on the front of the card and added the moon circle piece in the circular hole I had punched. Here is a look at the 2nd and 3rd panels where I added stars and sentiment die cuts from Tonic Studios to complete the card:
