It is always a sad time to make a sympathy card, but it is very important to send your condolences. A friend’s co-worker’d father passed away and she asked if I would make a special sympathy card to her. I made two options for her to choose from.
For my first card, I masked off the card front and blended Broken China, Peeled Paint and Evergreen Distress ink. I then stamped the single tree from Stampin’ Up – Lovely as a Tree in the same inks (stmped off once) for the background, then the full tree in Stampin’ Up – Artichoke Green. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted – Brushed Poppies. I stamped the tree on the envelope as well as inside the card.
For the second card, I went very simple. I used the white wood grain paper by SSS. I die cut the large fern Spellbinder - FOLIAGE Dies, and paper pieced it back into the opening. I only glued the stem so the leaves would add dimension. I added the Sympathy die sentiment from SSS. I added another leaf plus sentiment on th inside cover of the card, plus a greeting verse.
I entered this card into MFP - Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge 246 - Only White
UPDATE: I won the MFP - Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge 246 - Only White
