I am sure like many of you, creating sympathy cards is one of the hardest projects for me to actually stamp. This card is long over due and I found it very hard to create it as there were many emotions that surfaced. But I also know how much a hand stamped card and words of love and compassion is needed and appreciated by those who have suffered a loss.
I decided to use the beautiful woodgrain paper from the Serene Scenery Designer Paper Pad. This pad is full of gorgeous photo realism papers and then on the B side there are basic versatile designs like dots and circles in coordinating colours. While crafting the other night I made sure to use several of Jenilee's dies that I don't have (yet;). I cut out several of the intricate flowers, leaves and flourishes from the Flourish Thinlits Set. I tucked the large die cut behind the main image. The layout for this card was actually inspired by the current Fab Friday Challenge. It has been ages since I participated in any online challenges, I am hoping to get back to them now. It is always to fun to use a sketch or colour challenge as a jumping off point for creativity. I strayed a little from the sketch but I think you can definitely see where I drew inspiration from it.
Now the hard part will be the inside of the card, it is so hard to find the right words at a time like this.
Wishing you all a great day!
