Simply Sketched

Hello everyone,

Today I have a sympathy card to share with you.  I used the Stampin' Up Simply Sketched hostess set.  The card base is Smoky Slate layered with Orchid Opulence with another piece of Smoky Slate.  I decorated the background paper by stamping the Filigree background with Smoky Slate ink.

The flower image was stamped in StazOn Stone Gray onto a piece of Shimmery White paper cut from a Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Two #4 die.  It was colored with Prismacolor pencils with Gamsol.  I then mounted it to a piece of Orchid Opulence cut from a Decorative Labels Twenty-Two die.  I added Diamond Stickles and clear rhinestones as a finishing touch.  A strip of Orchid Opulence graces the bottom.  It was cut using the Scalloped Borders Two die and edged with a piece of seam binding.

The banner was created using the Framelits Bitty Banners and stamped With Sympathy in StazOn Stone Gray. A triple loop bow was made from Skies Over Versailles tea stained seam binding.  I purchased about 10 yards last year from a shop on Etsy.

The inside sentiment and image were stamped in StazOn Stone Gray.  Prismacolor Pencils were also used for the leaves and berries.

I don't usually have sympathy cards on hand and create them specifically for the individual.  Although sometimes I feel like the card is going to be late by the time I mail it.  You know how that goes!

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you're enjoying the first days of summer.
