Happy Monday, peeps! I once again found myself in need of sympathy cards....three, again! Two were for older men, so they were simple and masculine in design. The first one used a cabin image from Stampscapes, stamped in Stazon Black on Shimmery White cardstock and watercolored, then mounted on a piece of In Good Taste DSP:
The sentiment is from Hero Arts:
The second one seems a little odd for a sympathy card, but it was for a local farmer; he and his family own what it called a "Century Farm"....which means it has been in the family for at least 100 years. I sang in the choir with his wife for many years! I thought the DSP I used would bring them a smile:
Similar layout and I used the same sentiment; the papers are from Echo Park's Down on the Farm, and the stitched panel was also stamped with a retired Flannel Plaid background stamp from SU and embellished with some burlap trim:
Here's what I stamped on the inside, a verse from Cornish Heritage Farms:
Finally, one for a church family's mother; it uses the color scheme from the TGIF Challenge:
I do admit these colors threw me a bit...Petal Pink is always a challenge for me. I stamped the flowers from All Things Fabulous and diecut them with the matching Fabulous Floral dies. I placed them on a diecut frame cut with the Stitched Rectangle Dies, added some "splashes" from Gorgeous Grunge (ret), and a sentiment from Here's a Card:
I added some sequins; even a sympathy card can use a little bling:
Thanks so much for popping in today!
Have you ever seen a dog sleep like this? She must have had a cold snout!
