With Sympathy

I've made a sympathy card, and I'm not exactly as happy with it as I was my first card....but my cat got sick on it before I got a photo taken, so back down to the craft room I went last night to create another card. The photo is not the greatest, but I've taken it without natural light.

Here is the sketch:

Here is my card:

I used Black Cardstock for the mats and the main piece.  The main piece was run through my cuttlebug, then then I sanded down the embossed pattern so that the white core would show.  I used For Always as my patterned paper, and used the sentiment from Sincere Expressions(A1146), which I stamped all over in 2nd generation stamping, and then once more in 1st generation.  The flower is For Always textile rolled into a rosette, and I added a wisp of Black Tulle under.

I hope you will take the time to hop on over to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge to see the design teams creations, as they have worked really hard on this sketch


  1. I think it turned out great!! Love the flower

  2. I agree, it turned out beautifully. I have just ordered a "sympathy" set. It's easier to have these on hand than to try and make one when you need it.

  3. That cat's in big trouble! Love the card.

  4. I really like how the background stamping in the sentiment block turned out - great card!

  5. Michelle, I love your card. The color is so cool and the flower is pretty!


I enjoy hearing from you, and love to get blog love for my creations. Thank you for visiting my blog.
