With Sympathy Card

Hi all,

Sympathy cards are always so hard to create. I have been too unwell to make any new cards recently so this is one that was made for a very good friend when her father passed away.

For this card I started off by dry embosssing some white cardstock using the Bird Call Cuttlebug embossing folder and my Cuttlebug. I cut the piece down to size and stamped the With Sympathy greeting in Versafine Onyx Black ink. I cut a piece of cream cardstock to be a little smaller than my 7'' x 5'' card base and stamped the Thinking of you greeting with the same ink. I adhered the embossed panel to the cream cardstock and added some 1'' black satin ribbon. I then matted the panel to the card base to finish the card. 

I'm sorry the embossing isn't very clear on the photo, it was really hard to get a shot with enough contrast!

I am cutting it fine for entering before the deadline but I am entering this card into the The Paper Players With Sympathy Challenge.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at my blog today. 

Until next time,
Lucy x
