I haven't made any sympathy cards in a while - I will have to make a pile of them, because I really dislike making them when I need them. I'd much rather just have a stash ready.
I made these ones last night using my brand new Hero Arts cling stamp, Leafy Vines, which I clear embossed for an elegant, subtle background. I also pulled out my gold embossing powder for the sentiment, which has been gathering dust for a while. The sentiment is a VERY old stamp from "Stamps Happen Inc".
(sorry about this photo looking a bit grey - the shiny embossing powder made the light balance go a bit off- centre)
I made 2 cards while I had the supplies out (do you do this too?), but I made the 2nd one in landscape orientation. I'm not sure which orientation I prefer.....
