Sympathy Cards

Sympathy cards are never fun to make but they are cathartic for me.  I always think about the person that will be receiving it and try to create something peaceful and expressive.

This card has a tan base with cream front.   I used PTI Tea Dye Duo to antique the edges.  The cattails come from the stamp set With Sympathy and are stamped with SU certainly celery, sahara sand & basic brown.  The sentiment element is cut from Mat stack 2 die and stamped with the Mat Stack 2 Collection.  The ribbon, rhinestones and dragonfly punch are from Michael's.  

For the interior of this card, I cut a piece of cream with Mat Stack 5, edged it with the Tea Dye Duo, and stamped it with a sentiment from With Sympathy.  The image under the saying came from the Mat Stack 2 collection.  I think it was a nice finishing touch.

Thanks for stopping by~
