With heartfelt sympathy

Hello my friends! Hope you are having a great day, here is gray and rainy and gray and rainy, so you get the picture.
Last week one of my husband's co-workers loss his mom, it is always very painful when you lose somebody you love as a mom. So my husband asked if I had a Sympathy card ready to mail, but I didn't. I don't make sympathy cards, so I made this one.

  • Make card from Ivory cardstock.
  • Emboss a piece of Ivory Cardstock, ink all edges. Mat this with a piece of Kraft Cardstock. Add zig-zag stitches. Adhere it to card.
  • Stamp sentiment in Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
  • Tie on ribbon and make a bow.
  • Stamp image onto Ivory Cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black. Color image with Copic Markers. Die-cut, emboss and stencil it with Labels Fourteen Dies.
  • Adhere image to card with Pop Dots.
  • Add Stardust Stickles to flowers.
Card Recipe:
  • Cardstock: Ivory, Kraft (Gina K. Designs)
  • Stamps: Hugs and Prayers (Gina K. Designs)
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko), Vintage Photo Distres, Old Paper Distress (Ranger)
  • Embellsihments: White Ribbon, Stardust Stickles (Ranger)
  • Accessories: Embossing folder, Labels Fourteen dies (Spellbinders), Pop dots, Sponges.
I am submitting this card to:

  3. This is positively exquisite. I am sure that your husband's co-worker really appreciated the thought and gesture. Thank you so much for playing along with Speedy the Cat's Friends "No Designer Paper" challenge this week. Good luck in the Stamp drawing and hope you can play with us again next week.

    Bear Hugs,
