Thoughts and Prayers

There is never a good time to make a sympathy card.  It's always a sad occasion, but it means so much to the recipient.  This is one kind of card that I never have on hand.




My husband's roommate from college lost his father this week and we wanted to let his family know that we are sharing in their sorrow, too.  I immediately grabbed my "Thoughts and Prayers" SU stamp set.  It's my go to set for sympathy cards.  I don't know why, but I always keep sympathy cards on the simple side.  I stamped the branch and the sentiment on some white card stock and embellished the flowers with a tiny punched white flowers and mini black brads.  I layered the top panel with black card stock and then adhered the whole piece to a white card base.  Quick, easy and ready to be mailed!




RECIPE:
Stamps:  Thoughts and Prayers (SU)
Ink: Jet Black StaZon
Paper: White and Black card stock
Pin It
