Every blog I read I see the same thing...everyone dislikes making sympathy cards. Not that they are any harder to make but the purpose behind them. This last week my husband's uncle passed. It was expected but his loss will be sincerely noticed by many. Terry was one of 5 siblings and with extended family I needed to make quite a few cards and these came together very easily. The banners and spritzing were inspired by Dawn's card. I used the stamp set Nature Walk. The DSP is Comfort Cafe and the paper is Cajun Craze, Soft Suede and very Vanilla. I used soft suede ink for the bird and images on the First Edition DSP. I used the color spritzer and soft suede marker for the distressing. The sentiment is from teeny tiny wishes in Early Espresso. The button is a naturals designer button (page 176 of the IB & C) and tied with linen thread.
