I hate when my stash of sympathy cards runs out. It means too many people I care about are hurting. But, since they are some of the most appreciated cards, I try to always have at least three on hand. Here's one I created using the new Charlotte paper from CTMH:
The flower was cut with a file that's free on Cricut Design Space (for my Explore) right now. I cut it in Sorbet and Black, sponged the flower edges with Sorbet ink, and used some Slate Velvet Rub-ons left over from a CTMH Workshop I ordered years ago. The leaves are from a stamp set called "Shower Flowers" stamped in Slate. The background panel is actually from the paper designed to be used for Picture My Life. After I had the card assembled, the touch of gold in the ribbon felt out of place because I didn't have gold anywhere else so I added the two large gold sequins.
I'm entering it in this week's Color My Heart challenge: White, Black, Whisper, Slate, Sorbet, and Champagne.
I love how this turned out so I'll be making a few more for my stash. There's something both fresh and gentle about the color scheme that makes it perfect to extend sympathy.
Until next time,
