I keep thinking that I am going to make some sympathy cards to have on hand but it seems that whenever I need one, I have to make one quickly.  That is the story behind the card for my post today.

Sympathy left

As you can see, this is a simple but dignified card that is appropriate for  sympathy card.  The Floral Affection Textured Impressions Embossing Folder does the "heavy lifting" on my card.  This folder adds beautiful dimension to any project.  I used it twice to add flowers to both the top  & bottom halves of my card.

Sympathy rt

A strip of DSP from the Affectionately Yours  Specialty Designer Series Paper mimics the pattern of the Embossing Folder. The Copper Embossing on the paper adds some shine to my card.  I added several coils of Copper Metallic Thread behind the strip to add some texture to my card.

Sympathy flat

My card base is created with Kraft Cardstock.  The strip of DSP is edged with Night of Navy Cardstock in order to create some separation between the elements.  The card is a deeper, richer color than the photograph conveys.  A few Night of Navy Enamel Shapes add a bit more color to the center of some of the embossed flowers.

Sympathy inside

The inside of the card also has some elements that coordinate with the front of the card and an appropriate sentiment from Flourishing Phrases.  

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
