~Blue Sympathy~

I am a total wimp when it comes to death.

Death and crying.

I tend to shut down.

I felt moved to create this card...but I don't mind if it gathers dust.

If it's needed, though, at least it's done and can be sent in a timely manner.

I pray it's comforting.

The beautiful sentiment and image is from Flourishes.


The bit of embossing was done with my Spellbinders scalloped oval, when I ran it through a second time to raise the edges.

I then sponged it with distress ink.

  1. This is stunning!
    Thanks for playing at CAS-ual Fridays!

  2. Great idea to create this card in the future. Death does not always announce itself ahead of time and I'm usually caught off guard to get something ready. Love how you have cut the leaf to overlap the sentiment. Nice!

  3. Very nice and well made card. I know what it's like to make a sympathy card and this one is absolutely beautifully made :) I know it's hard subject matter, but for many, it's the thought that counts.

    Thank you for joining us in Flourishes Timeless Tuesday!
