This week at Paper Pretties our challenge theme PWC327 is "Sympathy". That's a challenge that usually goes over like a lead balloon but let's face it, eventually we all need to send one of these to someone so it's a good thing to have in our stash and if you don't get a nudge to make one you probably won't so now's the time to do it.
I prefer sympathy cards to be CAS. It's a somber time and the frills may not be appreciated. That doesn't mean it has to be black and white, or gray or white, or silver and white, all of which are good choices for sympathy cards. Pastel colors also work and since I love pink that's what I choose for this card which uses one of the "Irish Blessings" sentiments for a focal point. To dress it up a little I used Spellbinder dies to frame it and popped it up with dimensionals. A Stampin' Up corner punch was used on the pink mat to give it a little more interest.
Here's the deets:
stamp - Paper Pretties "Irish Blessings"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black"
paper - Bazzill "Buttercream" and Pink card stock
miscellaneous - Spellbinder's Label's Four and Imperial Gold Labels Four dies; Stampin' Up corner die
