Love & Sympathy

Just a quick post today - I'm designing cards to share later. This is one of "those" cards; the kind you never want to have to make.  Too depressing to share details, but I hope that knowing people care and are praying for the family helps them in some small way.

On the bright side, it is simple card to make (unless you're bow-challenged, haha), and would be great for other occasions if done in cheerier colors with a happier greeting. The mat behind the greeting was cut twice from Basic Black. One was split lengthwise and the other crosswise to form the mat.

Stamps: Everything Eleanor, Love & Sympathy
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Baked Brown Sugar DSP (In Color stack)
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Big Shot, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Basic Black 5/8" Satin Ribbon (retired)


  1. This pretty card would lift the sadness. I know what you mean about making this kind of card. I've made several too many lately.

  2. Beautifully done. I love using that swirl from Everything Eleanor when I want a "non-theme" card.

  3. This is such an elegant card, Cindy. Thank you for the tip about the mat in the background.


Thank you for visiting - I'd love to hear from you!
