Sympathy Cards

Hello Everyone,
Just wanted to pop in and say hello and post  a few ideas for sympathy cards.  I know that sometimes they can be hard to make.  I like to use soft colors and natural flowers or butterflies.  I made these for a card order.

Card #1

Two embossing folders were used for this card.  I applied Distress ink to the bird and then layered.

Card #2

The background is a DP from K & Company; the stamp is from Hero Arts.

Challenges for my Sympathy cards:
Brown Sugar: anything goes
Jo's Scrap Shack: anything goes
Just add Ink: just add texture
Sister Act: anything goes

I hope that gives you a few ideas for making sympathy cards.  I will be back on Monday with a new challenge with Love to Scrap with a Thanksgiving card.  See you then and have  great weekend.  Love ya

  7. They are both lovely sympathy cards Karen. I found the simplicity of the first quite striking - and the texture adds just the right amount of detail. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.
