Sympathy Card for Colleague's Husband, Friends with Flair Entry on Unity Stamp Co. Blog

Greetings All!  Today I am sharing a sympathy card I created for a dear friend and colleague's husband.  I lost a wonderful friend last week.  I am a lunchroom/recess assistant at one of our elementary schools.  I volunteered to make a sympathy card from our group to present to our friend's husband.  Since this card was being given to a man, of course I did not want it to be feminine.  I knew right away which stamp I would use.  I received this stamp in my last Unity order.  The stamp is called tangled leaf background; it is a Donna Downey Studios/Unity Stamp Co. collaboration.  The sentiment stamp is from the February 2015 Unity Sentiment Kit called beautiful life, blessed memories.  I used a heavy weight cream cardstock from Michael's for the card base.  I believe the woodgrain paper is Basic Grey.  The following watercolor crayons were used from Stampin' Up:  ruby red, really rust, and summer sun. 

I almost forgot.  I thought I would enter this card into Friends with Flair over on the Unity Stamp Co. blog.  There is usually a hop on Tuesday's but this week it was delayed until Thursday.  Make sure you check it out.

Thanks for visiting!!

Peace and love in crafting,

  2. Wow, this is really beautiful! So creative you are! Thank you for sharing and good luck!

  3. So very sorry for the loss of your friend. It's difficult to make a card when it is for the family of someone that was dear to you. You made a lovely piece here, though. I know it will be a comfort to this bereaved husband. May you be comforted in your grief, also.
