Sympathy with poppies


Hi, sadly I need to make some sympathy cards at the moment.

I've used my newly acquired memory Box Prim poppies die and coloured it with tombow markers.
The sentiment is from a Papertrey Ink sympathy set of stamps.

 I've mounted my embossed panel and my sentiment onto dark green card, as black seemed too dark. I sponged the cream cardstock with Versamark sand beige ink.

I'm going to enter the Anything Goes challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More.

At A Blog Named hero, the theme is to Clean Up Your Act, by making a clean and simple card.

Materials used: Memory Box Prim Poppies & Butterfly dies; Papertrey Ink sympathy stamp; Stampin Up Fancy Fan embossing folder; watercolour paper; Tombows; Versafine ink & clear embossing powder.

Thanks for visiting :)

  5. Hi Cathy

    I really struggle to make sympathy cards .. .. not because they are difficult .. .. just because they are tinged with sadness :-(

    You have done really well here though.

    Sorry you need to make them :-(

    Love Jules xx

  8. Sympathy cards are so difficult, but this one is so beautiful, it is sure to comfort the recipients. You thought of them and took the time to create something lovely. TFS
    (ps..I'm trying to get to Maudieroff to check if I'm following her. I don't understand about the google circle thing, and I can't get back to her blog. She said she is following my blog, but I don't see her...could you have her contact me and maybe we can figure this out???Thank you so much)
