Sympathy Cards

Sympathy cards are probably not the number 1 card that any paper crafter desires to make but, unfortunately, sometimes you need a few.  I needed to make a couple so worked on those last night.  I used the DCWV Mariposa papers (I have the mat stack which converts nicely to horizontal cards), some gold embossing powders and Hero Arts stamps.
Here is the first...a regular A2 sized card:
And a closeup of the embossing:
Then I made a 5x7 card....this paper was just too pretty to cut down:
I embossed the "With Sympathy" sentiment directly on the printed paper and then die cut and stamped some butterflies.
A closeup of the butterflies:
I did play with my new Distress Markers a bit and totally messed my little image up at the end!  LOL!  So it's back to the drawing board with those but I know I'll have fun with them today!

Happy Crafting!


  1. The Butterflies look nice with the gold heat embossing. Mariposa cardstock is very nice. I also posted a card (my 2nd entry for today) in which I used heat embossing.
    "Sunshine HoneyBee"

  2. Definitely never fun cards to make but I love the embossing and the set you made is gorgeous!


Thank you so much for leaving a comment. I appreciate the time it took you to leave me a note and I will enjoy reading it. Happy Crafting!
