In Sympathy


Stamps: Serenity (Verve)
Card Stock: Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla, Hello Sunshine (Cosmo Cricket 8x8 pad)
Ink: Chocolate Chip (pad & marker), Old Olive (marker), Pumpkin Pie (marker), Antique Linen Distress Ink (Ranger)
Accessories: Paper Piercing template (purchased at Gina K. Designs), Library Clips (SU), Linen Thread, Color Spritzer Tool, Stampin' Dimensionals



Unfortunately, I needed a sympathy card. Beate's BIC20 helped me with this (thanks Beate). I know I should have these made up ahead of time, but never seem to do it. I used my Serenity set by Verve Visual, and thought my patterned paper from my Hello Sunshine Cosmo Cricket pad worked nicely with it.

Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you're having a nice week!

Such a pretty card RoseAnn. I needed a sympathy card this week as well.

Antje said...

very well done, I always think, sympathy cards, not so dull must be much better to the receiver, a real comfort! Well done.

Very elegant! I agree that these are the toughest cards to make! And you used the spritzer tool? I haven't used mine in a thousand years! I love how it looks....maybe I need to get it out again! : )

beate said...

Wow! this card looks wonderful. I love how you used the inspiration piece.
You rock! Hugs and smiles

This is so lovely, Sympathy cards are so difficult to create, yours is fantastic.

Sorry you needed a sympathy card Rose Ann. I agree, we should keep some on hand but I know, I rarely do. This is beautiful! Beate sure knows how to get us creating eh?!

This is just gorgeous, Rose Ann! I'm sure it will bring much comfort.

Alexandra said...

it's a beautiful card Rose Ann, although I am sorry you need a sympathy card - those are tough for me as well!! This will make someone happy though, it is gorgeous! *STAMPIN HUGS* Alex

So sorry you needed a card for this occasion but it's so pretty! Sympathy cards are so hard for me too! Anywho, love what you did with this and i'm glad Beate's challenged helped you. Very pretty, Rose Ann!

Perfect for the occasion, sorry it has to be a sympathy card though. I have the hardest time with those. I reall love your colors on this one too :)

Shelly Koskinen said...

Your card is beautiful!! Great job!

fran said...

It's beautiful - though I'm sorry you needed it. I have a hard time making sympathy cards up ahead of time too. Hugs!

peanutbee said...

Yeah, I know I never want to make a sympathy card. That reminds me I should probably make a couple for my stash..I think I'm out. Yours is beautiful. I love the Verve Serenity set. What a perfect layout and colors. Like the small binder clip too. Very pretty, Rose Ann. :)

Rose Ann this is so pretty, I always mean to make some of these ahead of time and never do. your work is so lovely.

This is gorgeous! Sorry you needed it...

Beth said...

Such a beautiful card! Love everything about it! I tend to put off making these type of cards, also, although it would be easier to have some on hand. Belated birthday cards are another type I need to have on hand because if I miss someones birthday it is usually because I'm too busy!

Jerri Kay said...

I'm so sorry you had to make a sympathy card Rose Ann, it is beautiful and I know the recipient will be touched by your thoughtfulness in making it.

Joan B said...

Beautiful card for a sad reason. All your work shows such care.

Donna said...

sorry to hear you needed a sympathy card {hugs} it's so pretty, I'm sure the recipient will appreciate it.

Debbie Olson said...

Sorry that you needed this card, Rose Ann, but it certainly is lovely!

Leslie Miller said...

Oh, this is pretty, Rose Ann. I'm so sorry about the need for it, though. It's hard to make these up ahead of time for occasions you hope will never come up. Your card is just beautiful and very appropriate.

Julie Masse said...

Perfect sympathy card - just beautiful!

Sorry that you needed it, but your card is absolutely beautiful. Your interpretation of the inspiration piece is picture perfect.
