I don't like to make sympathy cards. I don't know many people that do. Unfortunately I needed one this week, and since I'd recently re-discovered my lost bag of go-to stamps, I pulled out my trusty Sympathy set and made this:
There are five stamps here: the words are all one stamp (like I could ever get them that straight), and the squares are individual stamps. I got these at a now-closed LSS back in Maryland many, many years ago. I used to use them with the 2007 SU In Colors, since they are muted and perfect for a sympathy card, but right now the inks are missing in action (probably in a box in the garage, in questionable condition), so I went with brighter colors for this one. Who says a sympathy card needs to be dull?
The inks are all Luxe inks, so they are embossable, but I chose to only emboss the words, and just let the small squares dry. I made the purple layer by using a sponge dauber to apply the same purple ink I'd used for the words to a piece of cream card stock. A perfect match!
Thanks for stopping by!
