Sympathy Card

My daughter's neighbor passed away this week, so I needed to make a sympathy card.  I never have any in my stash, as deep inside I probably don't want to make them.  But that being said - I had seen a SU sympathy card made with my favorite pansy stamp and choose that one to make.


Stamps - Flower Shop, Sincere Salutation, - SU, Sentiment - Michael's
Paper - Old Olive, Whisper White, DSP - SU
Ink - Old Olive - SU
Accessories - Floral Frames - SU
Embellishments - Mistletoe Ribbon, Pearls - SU

A made an A2 sized card in Old Olive and layered it with Whisper White and a piece of DSP.  I secured  my ribbon with a glue dot and then popped up my Floral Frames with dimensionals.  I decorated my pansies with some pearls and popped them up a well.  I added my sentiment "Thinking of You" on the inside and I was finished.  I think this design card could be used for other occasions as well.

Well, it is a miserable day for a funeral.  Lots of fog and nasty weather coming in.  We did enjoy the sun yesterday and spent some time holding our new granddaughter Jennifer.  She is really getting big - she now weighs 11 lbs. and is 4 mos. old!  Hope everyone has a good weekend and is keeping warm!

Thanks for stopping bye,
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah

I know how hard these are to make. Seems like every time I make one just to have on hand it winds up getting used right away. In fact, I need another one now which I hope I can do this this weekend. You've made this one very pretty with the pansy punch and flowers. I really like the cute floral frame, too.
