Thoughts and Prayers Sympathy Card

Unfortunately, we sometimes need sympathy cards and this card was inspired by Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge. I recently had a dear friend pass away and this card will go to his family.

Stampin' Up! Sympathy card

I used the sketch below to create my card and the colors are Smoky Slate, Indigo blue and Gumball Green.

I used the retired Island Indigo ruffled ribbon pleated around the oval.

Thoughts and Prayers Sympathy Card

I found myself needing a sympathy card and reached for the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set.  My inspiration for this card is from this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge.  The sketch made it easy to put this card together in not time.

Stampin' Up! sympathy card

I used Soft Suede for the card base and Naturals Ivory card stock.  I like how these colors look together.  The tree and the greeting are embossed with Early Espresso embossing powder.  The small buttons on the upper right are from the Vintage Trinkets assortment.  I like the transparency of the seam binding ribbon on the side and also used the twine at the bottom of the image to bring focus to the tree.

Here’s the sketch I used to create my card.  I love this sketch because it has so many possibilities.  Visit Hand Stamped Sentiments to see how this sketch inspired our design team.
