With Sympathy

Happy Sunday, everyone!  It's such a gorgeous day today, but since I am still dealing with a broken foot and still on crutches, I figured I would spend some time playing in my craft room.  I found out this morning that a friend of mine just lost her dad, so I needed a quick card.  This one went together pretty quickly since I just wanted something simple.

I used the Tri Square die from Simon Says Stamp on the front of the card.  I placed some Neena white cardstock on the inside (tacked it down with some washi tape) and lightly traced the squares for the flower placement.  I removed the white cardstock, stamped the flower images, colored them with copics and then erased the pencil lines.  Easy peasy.

I added the twine, but it still needed "a little something" so I just added a strip of washi tape along the top.  I think it worked... kept it simple, yet fill that void that bothered me so!  The sentiment on the bottom is from a Hero Arts set called Remember.

The flowers are from a company called Anita's.   I must have bought them at a rubber stamp show, I can't remember.   Also, the "With Sympathy" is stamped a little crooked and it REALLY bothers me, but it's going to have to do.  That is so un-me.... usually I would rip it up and start over, but I am really trying to not being so picky.  Go me!

Have a great week!  As always, thanks for stopping by!

  1. Sweet and simple card. She won't notice the crookedness (I didn't!)
