Love & Sympathy

Sympathy cards are not my favorite types of cards to put together as they reflect some type of pain and loss in a person’s life. However, these cards are a wonderful way to let someone know how much you care and that you are there to support them. One of the best sympathy themed stamp sets is called Love & Sympathy. The sentiments and images are just beautiful!

For this card, I decided to use some soft colors:  Pool Party and So Saffron. I started out with a 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of whisper white cardstock. I chose to use a 4 x 2 inch piece of This & That designer paper to serve as the backdrop…using the dotted scallop ribbon punch and a 4 x 1 inch piece of so saffron cardstock, I added a little bit of trim to the bottom of the designer paper. The flower image is stamped in so saffron on a piece of 1 3/4 x 3 3/4 inch piece of cardstock…which is then framed out with a slightly larger piece of pool party cardstock cut to 2 x 4 inches. The sentiment is stamped in pool party ink directly over the flower image.  The final touches to the card…add a few itty bitty flowers, some ribbon and pearls and you have a beautiful expression of support!
