CAS Sympathy Cards

This week's SCS CAS challenge was to make a sympathy card. I used a layout that I had used for graduation and birthday cards and made two sympathy cards. For this first card I stamped the leaves from Petal Prints in Mellow Moss twice without reinking in between. I stamped the sentiment from Paper Inspirations in Mellow Moss also. I then embossed the side of the card with the Cuttlebug Textile embossing folder and scored two lines with my Scor-pal for a border. I added a pearl to the crocheted butterfly from Paper Blooms and attached it with a Mini Pop Dot.

This next card is using the same layout. I colored the Penny Black Blush flower with Lovely Lilac and Mellow Moss SU! markers and stamped it directly on the card and then over stamped the sympathy sentiment from Paper Inspirations in Versafine Onyx Black and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder and scored the two lines for a border.

Thanks for coming by!

  1. They are both so pretty, Harriet! You do know how much I love white cards, and you do them so well:)

  2. Both cards are so nice but the first one is my favorite. Using that color alone on a card would not have crossed my mind. Love those vertical stamps!

  3. These are just beautiful! Wow...

  4. Wowee these are stunning cards for such a sad occassion, ooh Harriet your work is awesome.

  5. Both are so pretty, Harriet. You really did a great great job on this challenge!

  6. Love this idea of the half stamped, half embossed card front. And so appropriate for the occasion.

  7. Your sympathy cards are lovely. I especially love the first one.
