Sympathy Card

Sympathy cards....not the "funnest" to make, perhaps, but it's nice knowing you are making for someone who may receive a bit of comfort from it.
A friend on one of my tennis teams lost her mother a few days ago and I made this card to mail to her.
 I used Basic Grey's Little Black Dress papers.  The border was punched with a Martha Stewart punch (one of my favorites!).  The 3 layer flower is from Recollections and had a little Glimmer Mist Sprayed on it.  The brad if you're interested is from Basic Grey....I know we should give credit or acknowledgement for the products we used in cases someone wants to know or use them too...but seriously...a brad, an eyelet?....where a clear button came from?  What 4 types of adhesive I used?  LOL!  OK, I digress....
Here's a closer up photo of the has a little gauzy shimmery layer which is so pretty to me....

The sentiment is from Hero Arts Everyday Sayings....a wonderful stamp set that I've used several times.

I entered this in the Basic Grey Challenge 76: Punch It!!!

That's it for to get some errands done and hope to get into my craft room later today!

Happy Crafting!

  2. Love that Martha Stewart punch. So sorry to hear about your friend's mother, this card is beautiful and I'm sure she'll appreciate it. BTW- I'm staring ALTA on Sunday...haven't played in 4 years...I'm a bit scared :-)

  3. A beautiful Sympathy card Susan, your design and colours are stunning and I love your details.
