One of the cards requested for our next card class was a sympathy card. I love this card but I'm not sure it is really a good sympathy card. It came out more like a wedding card to me.
What I was going for was anything that didn't have a tree on it. Every time I make a sympathy card, I reach for the trees, tree and nature stamps, that is. They are appropriate, I just wanted a change.
So I'll give the ladies the option of using a sympathy message or another greeting. Anyway, we get to use the pretty medallion stamp we haven't exercised in quite a while. It is stamped twice, once in Colorbox Fluid Chalk Chestnut Roan. I chose this ink because it stamps so beautifully every time on any paper. With a large stamp directly on the background that is a plus. The middle is stamped again on cream cardstock in Versamark and embossed with copper powder.
Thanks for visiting today! Be sure and drop by again on Saturday as I'll have a '10 Things' post about a favorite topic - designer paper. Oh, and I'm expecting a visit from the mail man soon with a box of treats. Yippee, new stuff !
