Another Simple Sympathy Card

Unfortunately, when a friend asks for a card from me, it’s quite often been a sympathy card.  I’m pretty sure that I’ve made more sympathy cards in the last year than I ever have in the last 10.  I’ve said before that sympathy cards have always been hard for me to make.  It’s such a personal and emotional thing, that I feel pressure to make it just perfect.  This one came together fairly easily, and I’m really happy with how it turned out.

My Empty Nest Creations Sympathy Card using Concord & 9ths Lily stamp set

I started by stamping the lily from Concord & 9th’s Lily stamp set twice on a piece of purple card stock with Versamark ink, and heat embossing it with Recollections Snow embossing powder.  Using my white Prismacolor colored pencil, I colored in the petals.  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things Brushstroke Expressions stamp set.  I black heat embossed it onto a strip of velum and adhered it onto the purple card front.

To brighten the card a bit, I used a piece of patterned paper from My Favorite Things Black & White paper pad as the backing.  Because I’m kind of hooked on dimension, I used foam tape to attach the purple card front to the card base, and as usual, I added a few black Nuvo drops.

Thanks for stopping by!
