Color Challenge/Sympathy Cards

Hi friends!!

I was recently asked to make a couple sympathy cards - truly, does ANYONE enjoy making sympathy cards? The loss of life is so difficult, gives me a lump in my throat just thinking about it.

But I have to admit, I enjoyed making these cards...it's the color combo I like, not the "type" of card!

I decided to participate in Dawn's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #12 - I've never participated before, but I certainly will in the future. I LOVED this color combo!! PTI Raspberry Fizz, PTI Kraft, PTI Dark Chocolate and White - I love using PTI's Fresh Snow ink; you can see I've stamped the sentiment and edged the Kraft cardstock with the white ink.

On the first card I used a rub-on from Stampin' Up and left it pretty simple.

Now I REALLY like the 2nd card I made - it uses the Upsy Daisy set by Stampin' Up - I should so use this set more often, I always like what I create!

I embossed the flowers & the sentiment with white embossing powder; really makes them pop! I also used double-stitched Raspberry Fizz ribbon from PTI. They really have such scrumptious papers, inks, buttons and ribbons! I think I'm in love!

I also edged the Kraft with white ink on this card. I added a layer of Kraft card stock and a punched layer of Raspberry Fizz to the inside...did you notice I used my "favorite" Martha Stewart punch? Yeah...I still love it! Yeah...I have a few more cards to show you with that same punch. LOL Bear with me, I'll find another fave soon I bet!

I'm glad you stopped by, I love when you visit. Hope you're having a great week! Hugs, ~M.
