Love and Comfort

Sympathy cards are hard to make. I prefer to make them when I don’t need them so I will have a variety of cards to choose from. My stack of Sympathy cards was getting low so I decided to create a few.

This is one of the designs I came up with. It is simple and classic. I don’t like fussy sympathy cards.

 

I used watercolor paper and painted fall colors on the wet paper. Then I splattered it with some Cherry Cobbler ink. I used the Seasonal Layers Thinlits to cut out the leaf. Then I slid the watercolor paper behind the leaf cut out. I used dimensionls to raise the top layer and it gave the card some nice dimension. A sentiment and a tiny bit of splatter finished my card.

What is your favorite type of sympathy card? Please share.

 Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Stamping!

Easy Sympathy Card

Thanks for popping in today. I hope you have a lovely weekend planned. I took the day off yesterday so a long walk is first on my agenda. Tonight we have a church choir potluck dinner party. I am taking a Tomato Tart – recipe found in the Summer issue of Magnolia Journal. It is sinfully delicious. In-between my walk and cooking I will get in a little stamping.  Today I am focusing on Colorful Seasons as I have a workshop towards the end of the month and they requested this stamp set. It is a great all around set so that makes me happy. 

It seems like we go through sympathy cards faster than most other cards. I know it is important to send them but they are not always an easy card to make. When I find one I like I try to make a few extra to keep on hand. Certainly this one does not have a lot of stamping just a sentiment from the Rose Wonder set. I love the simplicity of the card though.

You could easily change the sentiment on this and make it into a birthday, thinking of you, or even a wedding card.

 Use the Thick Very Vanilla Card stock for the base and Rose die cut. This will give you a nice thick die cut rose. Use the new Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to attach the rose to the card front. Easy peasy.

Happy Stamping!
