This is my first sympathy card in over 10 years. Not that I didn't need any, but when our son died 10 years ago, it was just too hard to make them. I would have my friends go out and buy some for me and even read them...it was just too hard for me.
But today, I changed that. I created this card that I feel turned out pretty good. I used the pattern Heartfelt Classic (modified) on page 71 of our Originals How To Book. I also used Desert Sand and Colonial White cardstock with the blue patterned paper from our Sarsaparilla Level 2 kit. The stamps that were used were So Sweet (C1389) and Paisley Praise (D1414), and twilight ink (second generation) and garden green ink that I water brushed on the leaves. I wanted a slight color...didn't want it bold and bright. I also used our colonial white ribbon and a button from our Winter Buttons.
It is a simple yet beautiful card. I hope that you will not need a sympathy card, but if you do, here is a sample for you.
