When my husband & I first started our teaching careers we met a fellow teacher and his wife.  Living in a small community with little entertainment available, we spent a good deal of time together playing cards & games. After several years Bob & I moved. However, we have stayed in touch with our friends and on occasion we meet for lunch.  Sadly, we received word that his brother  passed away unexpectedly.

Here is the card I made to send them.

The stamp set Heartfelt Sympathy was perfect for my card.  After stamping the sentiment with Versa Mark Ink, I heat embossed it with Copper Embossing Powder. Adding loops of Copper Metallic Thread give my card a touch of artistry.  In addition, I used my Brayer with Tangerine Tango Ink on a piece of Irresistibly Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper.  It created a nice backdrop for my popped up sentiment piece.

Feeling like my card needed more embellishment, I turned to the Flourish Thinlits for a leaf and a berry branch.  The leaf is cut from Old Olive Cardstock Soft Suede Cardstock was used for the branch. A small piece of Gold 1/4" Natural Trim adds a touch of elegance without being overpowering.
