With Sympathy

Hello there!
How's your week been so far?
Enjoying your summer vacation?

One of my co-workers recently asked me
to make a sympathy card for someone in her family.
And while I was happy to do it, 
sympathy cards can be tricky to make.
I've found that simple design and classic
fonts and images seem to work best.

On this card, I used an emboss-resist technique
with two different hero arts stamps, a vintage book page,
a Fiskars sentiment stamp, some Distress Inks, and twine.

I hope that none of you find yourselves in need of a sympathy
card in the near future, but sometimes it's nice to make one or two
just to have on hand, should the occasion arise.
Then you'll be able to send off your thoughts and prayers,
and help ease the sorrow of their loss just a little bit.

Thanks for stopping by today!
