Sending Love & Sympathy


Happy Friday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a sympathy card I made this week. These are the kind of cards we don't like to have to make but sometimes they are a needed. I needed one this week.

I used the Stampin Up set called "Love & Sympathy" and made this CAS card. 
The base of the card is basic black and then the next layer is some white card stock that I embossed with the vintage wall EF. 
I used some real red card stock for a pop of color and also pulled out some items I got awhile back and have not used much. The scallop and heart embossed strips are made with these. I used the Adorning Accents edgelit and embossing strips.
The main image I colored with my markers and stamped onto whisper white card stock. I used some tiny silver brads on the main panel as well. 
I finished it off with some basic black satin ribbon and silver pearls.
Well, that is it from me for now, thanks for stopping by and 
HAPPY STAMPING!!!

Oh Vicki, I'm sorry you were in need of a sympathy card. I agree they are always hard to make. This one came together beautifully.
