With Sympathy

Sunday, January 6, 2013

 
Sympathy cards are not easy to make.  You want it to be beautiful, but not too fancy or embellished.  Today I needed to make a sympathy card to send to a friend and when I sat down to make it, I just drew a blank. 
 
 
So, I turned to all of the beautiful inspiration on Pinterest.  I knew I'd find something there.  I don't often CASE someone else's work, but when I found this card that Stephanie made, it just seemed perfect.  I only used a different embossing folder and sentiment to suit my needs and the supplies I have on hand.
 
 
It helped to get my juices flowing too and I made two more cards after this one that I will share soon!
 
 


Cardstock: PTI White
Stamps: PTI Love Lives Here, Botanical Silhouettes
Ink: PTI Smokey Shadow, Autumn Rose
Dies: PTI Love Lives Here Butterfly
Other: CB Embossing Folder, Corner Rounder Punch

This is a beautiful sympathy card. I agree that they are hard to make, especially if you make them when you need them. I like to have a stash, and I think I'll be casing this beauty.
