Sympathy Cards

Hi friends,

Thought I'd share what I worked on the last couple of days. I had a request to make 6 sympathy cards with limited layering or embellishments.  So, I drug out some old stamps and a die, and got busy!  Here's what I created (photos are not the best today - you may need to click and enlarge):

This first card uses one of may forever favorite stamps from Penny Black. It's called 'At Grace'.  The sentiment on both the inside and outside were from the Stampin' Up set 'Woven Heirlooms'.
I'm going to enter this card in the Saturday Challenge at Penny Black. The challenge is 'Inspired by a Song', and these flowers make me think of 'Blue Velvet'!!!

 Here's what was put inside.

This set was stamped with Stampin' Up's 'Soft Spring'.
 And here is the inside. The sentiment is created by Julee Tillman, and you can find it at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

This is an old wooden stamp that I use a lot for masculine cards. 'Rowboat by Impression Obsession'.
 The inside sentiment is from a set that I found on the sale rack at Hobby Lobby several years ago.

Another fun stamp set by Stampin' Up, 'Tranquil Tulips'. The sentiments on the card front and inside are both from the Hobby Lobby set.

This card uses a die from Taylored Expressions, 'Shade Tree', and a sentiment from the 'Wishing You Well' set from Stampin' Up. The envelope is stamped with Woven Heirlooms (Stampin' Up).

Inside sentiment is 'May the Peace' by Rubbernecker.

Last, but not least, is a beautiful digital image from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I computer generated sentiment and frame while I was working on sizing image.

Inside sentiment is from the MSE set from Hobby Lobby. I'm entering this card in the monthly challenge at the Sweet 'n Sassy VIP group on Facebook.

Well, that's it!!!  Now I have an order for ten of the toilet paper cards that I shared a week or two ago, so I'm off to draw patterns on cardstock!

Hope you like at least one or two of these, and hope the lady I made them for likes them!

Thanks for stopping by, hope your weekend was great.

Your cards are all just beautiful, Patti! I'm sure the person who ordered them is really, really pleased. I think my favorite is the tulip card. Those tulips look so delicate. Thanks for sharing this amazing collection of cards.
