Sympathy cards are the one type of card that we would really not have to make but they are probably the ones that bring the most comfort to the recipient ~ they know someone is thinking of them at a difficult time in their life.
The Thoughts and Prayers stamp set is a one to have in your stash, not only is it suitable for bereavement it also has some lovely sentiments for get well and thinking of you…. and what can I say about the two images – one the most elegant tree and the other a lovely ‘swooshy’ flowery branch – which I have used on an anniversary card before.
Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 4 Very Vanilla Card run thru the Big Shot with the Garden Trellis embossing folder
Layer 2: 4 1/4 x 3 1/4 Marina Mist Card
Layer 3: 4 x 3 Very Vanilla Card also run thru the Big Shot with the Garden Trellis embossing folder
Ink Color: Crumb Cake
The ‘swooshy’ flowery branch was stamped before running thru the Big Shot and to give a more vintage feel all the edges of Very Vanilla pieces were sponged with Crumb Cake.
I used the new 1/4 Marina Mist Ombre ribbon, in fact that was my starting point for this card – I did so want to use that ribbon!!! The greeting and layer were cut with the Layering Oval Framelits giving another layer of softness I was looking for. IF you haven’t tried the Oval Framelits you should seriously add them to your next order – 15 ovals of varying sizes, some plan some scalloped giving lots of scope for layering.
A gentle sprinkling of pearls and I was done. I think with a change in the message this would make a perfect birthday or thank you card.
