Sympathy Card

I was visiting my Aunt's house yesterday. She's a relatively new papercrafter (she made her first CTMH purchase in June 2012) and I was helping her get started making items from the Whooo's Your Valentine kit. I showed her how to make a rosette and we were able to complete one project (unfortunately I forget to take a photo).

When we were done she asked me to help her make a sympathy card. I was not expecting to work on another project so I did not have many supplies with me. We pulled out the items she acquired in the past 6 or so months and this is what we came up with:

We were fortunate enough to find the following supplies in her stash (and the sandking kit the Medium Organizer (Z4139) I keep my basic supplies in):
  • White Daisy Die-Cut Cards & Envelopes (Z1473)
  • August 2012 SOTM Baroque Borders (no longer available)
  • cardstock (X5757) and matching ink pad (Z2190), Gypsy
  • My Acrylix® 4 My Friend stamp set (D1510)
  • My Acrylix® Simple Memories stamp set (D1472
  • Sanding kit (Z1294)
We layered the cardstock on the front of the card base before stamping so it would be easier to see where and how the stamp would fit. We sanded the bottom edge of the card to give it some character and to coordinate with the distressed look of the stamp. We stamped the corner stamp from Baroque Borders at a "V" angle and then added the little flourish on either side near the bottom of the card front. The white space looked a little barren so we added the border stamp from Simple Memories.

On the card inside, we used another stamp from Baroque Borders and the "Sorry for your loss" stamp from 4 My Friend.

I hope you enjoy the simple Sympathy card we created. If we inspired you and you do not have your own CTMH Independent Consultant, I would be honored if you make a purchase from me. You can order online anytime. Thanks for stopping by.
