AW33: Lovely as a Tree Sympathy Card

http://aroundtheworldstampinchallenges.blogspot.ca/2015/01/aw33-sketchbocetoskizzeschets.html
It's time for another Around the World Challenge! Our Design Team is made up of one talented demonstrator from each country/market where Stampin' Up! operates. I love seeing how stampers Around the World interpret each new challenge. I hope you'll play along with us! Click here to see all the details of the newest challenge.

This month, we're doing sketch challenges. I need to make six sympathy cards, so I used this challenge sketch as inspiration for my card layout. Instead of adding an embellishment in the middle, I created a negative spotlight on the stamped image. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think of this clean and simple card!

[Edited on 1-19-15 to add video] The secret is that there are two pieces of cardstock. In other words, I didn't magically stamp the image perfectly on the layer underneath! I stamped it on a small piece, lined it up under the window and then layered it on the same color cardstock. Check out the video tutorial below and it will make more sense!

This is such a lovely sympathy card. Elegant! Will you share a video or a tutorial about how you did the stamping? Thanks

I think the negative spotlight is a yet another great way to showcase this wonderful image. A pity it had to be for a Sympathy Card.

This is a wonderful new-to-me way to create the moon, and it is especially effective with good ole Lovely as a Tree. Thank you for sharing!
