Sympathy card?

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 !

Ingredients:  Stamp:  Medallion by Stampin' Up!
Cardstock:  Bashful Blue
Ribbon:  Hobby Lobby
Paper:  Beautiful Life paper pad by MME, striped paper also by MME


  1. Beautiful card. I think it will be fine for a sympathy card.

  2. Gorgeous card, Lisa. And I agree with the last poster that it will work as a sympathy card... or just about anything. Love it.
