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,
