Heartfelt Condolences

I hope your week is off to a great start! Just so you know, today is the last day of our DRS Sketch Challenge.

Here is the sketch ...

Here are the prizes you could win...


This is the card I created using the sketch.
It's never a good thing to need a sympathy card, but it is a necessity from time to time. I feel it's better to make one when I don't need it because it's usually just too hard to think about it when the time comes that I DO need it.

The images and fonts are just lovely in this month's New Releases and cover the needs of many different types of sympathy cards. For mine, I wanted to keep the colors soft and soothing so it's done entirely in white, cream and a soft butter yellow. I stamped the cross once on white and once on cream, cut out the inside of the white one and attached on top of the cream outline. Markers were used to color all of the lilies.

After stamping the sentiment on the bottom of a white panel, I used a large dot embossing folder on it. I used the smaller Swiss dots on the narrow white and also the large cream panel. A black marker was used to give definition to all of the edges. I attached a narrow flower punched strip at the bottom of the cross panel, a cut out corner lily and made a faux brad for my tab. Stickles was added to the flowers.

Here's how to enter the sketch challenge:

This is sooooo beautiful! I agree with you; it is probably easier to make a sympathy card when you don't need it, but just have time to be creative and make something special. Thanks for sharing the inspiration!
