Unfortunately, I will be making a few more sympathy cards today. :( Our dear sweet co-worker's mother passed away unexpectedly late Thursday evening. I learned the news early Friday morning, called my co-worker and proceeded to cry for the next 10 minutes. They knew she was ill, but not "she's going to die ill"; of course, when it's your time - IT'S YOUR TIME!
Anyway, this particularly sympathy card was a custom order last week and I really like how it turned out. I used the VLVJAN2011 layout (week 3). I used some DP from Memory Box and Basic Grey's basics manilla paper. My all-time favorite sympathy set is by Verve Visual, "Forever in Our Hearts"; I always turn to this set when sympathy cards are needed.
I stamped the large and small foilage in 2nd generation PTI Dark Chocolate & then offset with VersaMagic Malted Mauve on the main panel. Distressed all the edges, added some pink satin ribbon from My Favorite Things and a large PTI button with Chocolate baker's twine to finish it off.
Love how it turned out; pray it brings comfort to the one receiving it.
Have a great weekend; hugs, ~M.
