Sympathy cards for my stash

If you remember, I've had a need for a lot of sympathy cards lately. I used all of the ones I had on hand, so my goal was to replenish my supply so I wouldn't have to crank them out at the last minute.

I searched on Splitcoaststampers for some sympathy card ideas, and I really loved this one. I chose to use it as an inspiration piece for my cards.

Supplies: stamp (Inkadinkado); paper (Georgia Pacific); leaf punch (Target $1 Spot); Prima flowers; dew drops; white pearl dimensional paint; CB Textiles embossing folder; Versamark and gold embossing powder.

I was going to add gold satin ribbon, but I liked how it looked without it. Why mess with a good thing, right?

I was so pleased with how these turned out!

What a beautiful card! You could use the idea for many different types of cards besides sympathy. Weddings come to mind, since my daughter is getting married in less than 6 weeks, but birthdays, too.
