I usually have a few sympathy cards in my stash, but often not a one layer one. I like having several so when I need them, I don’t have to rush and make one.
I was inspired by buddies Gayle and Johanna to create a one layer sympathy card. I used the Simon Says Stamp Vintage Garden set to produce this card. I embossed everything in clear powder over black ink, but wanted a bit of color. Out came Stampin’ Up markers to add a bit of color using Polished Pink, Pale Papaya, Fresh Freesia, Granny Apple Green and Daffodil Delight.
Everybody needs a sympathy card on hand and they can be difficult to create when needed. I made one for the Mod Squad Challenge to keep on hand.
I found this idea on Pinterest. I added more water than the one I found and use different inks and a different sentiment, but the rest is the same. The stamp sets used are High Tide by Stampin Up and sign4words by The Stamps of Life. I used Lawn Fawn inks for the water, birds and greeting, and Memento ink for the sky. The gems are from Hobby Lobby.
