Sympathy cards are difficult, aren't they? Creating the right look, setting the right tone, finding the right words. I prefer to create a very clean and simple card; elegant and understated, with a simple message of heartfelt love and caring.
The Love & Sympathy stamp set is exactly what I wanted. The flower and stems image is versatile enough to create a few different looks and can very well be used on other projects. The main sentiment is exactly right and I particularly like the verse sentiment.
In addition, while I do try to create a few sympathy cards in advance to have on hand, this stamp set makes creating a sympathy card on the spur of the moment incredibly easy.
I'm sure I've used Summer Starfruit and Soft Suede paired together before, but creating this card reminded me what a great power couple these two colors make. While it wasn't appropriate for this card, the pairing of those two colors in card stock and ink is a dynamic color combo. Give it a try!
