Simple Sympathy Card

I think there are years where I don't have the need for a sympathy card.  Sadly I've needed several the past few weeks.

I made several of these cards yesterday...very simple and fast but with a touch of elegance, I think.  (slight glare from the light and glitter on the bottom left but it is what it is!)

I used paper from My Minds Eye called Grand Vignettes by Carina Gardiner (it has a glittery look to it...sorry, Donna!...but I love me some GLITTER and SHINE!).  The butterfly is a Hero Arts stamp from the Vintage Engraving Set. 

 I stamped on black with Versamark and embossed it with Bridal Ranger Embossing Tinsel....I love that is so pretty when melted!
Ranger 1 Ounce Tinsels Embossing Powder, Bridal
 The sentiment is from a Heidi Grace set and I also embossed it.  No ribbon or other bulky embellishments were added so that they'd mail easily.

I made four of these in less than an hour.  Sometimes fast is good....


  1. Great papers on this card! Sorry you are having to make so many of these, never any fun. I left you a little award on my blog, hope you will play along!

  2. I agree, sad to make so many of these cards. The thought, talent, time and elegance really depicts your sympathy. Vice nice card.

  5. Stunning card, altho the sentiment makes us all a bit sad... Hugs to you sorry you've needed so many lately.
    Have a good day.

  6. Sorry for your losses. Nice sympathy card. Like the Butterfly & the embossing the best.
