Unfortunately I didn’t have any sympathy/thinking of you cards left in my basket at home and even worse is that I think I’m going to need one soon :( So I set out to make a suitable card and turned to the fabulous inspiration of Teneale. I am always amazed at Teneale’s creations – the depth and layering of stamping is beyond words. Not only that but she finishes the inside of her cards as beautifully as the front. For my card I was actually inspired by the inside of this card. I kept the colours muted and not too dark. That may seem odd, but sometimes I think dark sympathy cards can be depressing in themselves.
Stamps – PTI life, through the trees, text style
Inks – PTI chai, chamomile
Paper – SU
What a beautiful monochromatic card.
Such a pretty and stylish card! It’s sad when we need cards like these and they should be elegant, but I totally agree with you that they shouldn’t have to be depressive. The people who you send it to need some cheering up as well and the sight of beauty and elegance, like in this card, always make people smile. Very pretty card!
I’m sorry you’ll be needing a sympathy card soon, but this one is beautiful and so elegant. I’m sure it will be an encouragement to the receiver!
very very pretty….love this mono color scheme!!
Sorry you might have to use it but it is beautiful.
Debby, this is so beautiful. I really actually love muted colors on sympathy cards. It’s very classy. This makes me want to get out my Larger than Life set! Really pretty!
This is perfect Debby! the colors are serene and not to depressing. It is perfect. So sorry that it is necessary…
