with sympathy

so if you are already a card maker im sure you will know sympathy cards are some of the hardest to make, but they are always needed at the saddest of times and so appreciated most. i think it is worth keeping sympathy cards simple, or limit the colour palette.
for this card i used a 4x4 card blank, craftwork cards digi cardstock, stampin up! simply soft & petite pairs stamp sets i also used the stampin up! stamp-a-ma-jig as it is the only way to line the flowers up and is a gods send (if you have ever used one you will know), ranger archival ink pad in jet black and tim holtz distress ink pads in yellow tones.

for this card i used stampin up! summer solstice  and love & sympathy stamp sets,i also used a label framelit die from stampin up! and my big shot, archival ink pad in deep purple,a 4x6 card blank, some craftwork cards digi cardstock, i also painted  a little cosmic shimmer iridescent watercolour paint in lavender shine to the centre of the flowers to add a bit more detail.

hope you liked my ideas, please feel free to leave any comments on my projects
