Sympathy for Mary, LSC206

My cousin, Paul Torok, passed away Friday after battling colon cancer for several years. I made this card for his wife, Mary, who is just the sweetest, most delightful woman. They had only found each other 5 years ago, but I am so glad for the time they did get to spend together.

The SCS Challenge LSC206 (Say What You Feel) was perfect for this. The only stamp we could use was a sentiment, which I had already planned anyway. I knew Paul would be called home to be with the Lord soon, so I bought the cross for the card last week. Paul and Mary were deeply religious (he was a minister), so I thought a simple card, with just a sentiment and cross was appropriate.

Cardstock: The Paper Company Weave Black, Neenah Solar White Classic Crest Cover
Stamp: Impression Obsession "Sympathy Sentiments"
Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black, heat embossed with JudiKins Clear Detail EP
Accessories: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, Nestabilities Labels Two, Taylor's Tiny Twinkles black rhinestones, black satin ribbon from my stash, silver cross


  1. Lovely card and such a true sentiment. I am sure she will appreciate it.

  2. Cindy~ Very nice card for a sad occasion. (hugs) to you and your family.

  3. It's never good to have to send sympathy cards, but you've done a wonderful job and I'm sure it will bring comfort.

  4. I find these cards so very difficult to make and have had to make two this year already :( You have made such a beautiful card Cindy, the sentiment is really lovely

    hugs Bev x
