Sympathy Card

Had to make another sympathy card for someone --- Card stock base is SU Cool Caribbean, light blue is Close To My Heart, white is 110# weight card stock from Mikes. Used three distress inks for the left front side of the card -- bottom is Tumbled Glass, then Peacock Feathers, and the top is Evergreen Bough. The flower stamp is by Gina K Designs from the Comfort and Peace stamp set. The "Sharing in your Sorrow" is from the Gina K Design stamp set Stately Flowers 2. Used SU Cool Caribbean ink for the flower and the greeting.

Cut out the flower using the Classic Ovals die set from Spellbinders. Left the die cut flower piece in the die and sponged SU Cool Caribbean over that and then took it out of the die -- this give the white border around the stamped/sponged piece:

Added pearls to the center of the flowers and those are from M Stewart. The floral oval is on the card front using pop dots for dimension. TFL and YOLO

Sympathy cards are always hard to make.

What a beautiful card to make for this special person.

I love the different shades of blues you used.

Thank you always sharing the way you make you cards. Very helpful.
