Kylie’s International Blog Hop-Sympathy

Hello friends!  Its about time I took part in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Hop again!  This month is featuring Sympathy cards.  Now, I know that these are quite possibly the hardest cards to make and send.  After all, its a sympathy card, right?  Hopefully the talented crafters in the hop will give you some inspiration-whether you are a keep-it-simple or someone who likes to “wow,” I’m sure there is something for you in this hop!  This is a vote-for-me blog hop, so head on over HERE and vote for your favorites!  The top ten get to participate in a blog hop of their own!

I decided to look at the Hello Friend stamp set.  Its not a sympathy set per say, but the wreath in the set is gorgeous and kind of reminds me of a funeral plot wreath.  I decided to stay with 2 neutral colors, Emerald Envy and Crumb Cake, with a pop of white embossing powder.  Here it is!

The layers are as follows:
-Crumb Cake top layer (with wreath):  4″ by 3″
-Whisper White layer-4 x 1/8″ by 3 x 1/8″
-Emerald Envy layer-4 x 1/4″ by 3 x 1/4″
-Crumb Cake base is 5 x 1/2″ by 8 x 1/2″ scored at 4 x 1/4″

I used my precision stamping tool (I have the Stampoholic) to stamp that wreath 3 times.  I got a good, dark wreath that way.  Then, I used Versamark and White Embossing powder to do the flowers.  The sentiment is from the Better Together stamp set.

You’ll want to add a piece of Whisper White on the inside so that you can write.  I used a stamp from the Thoughts and Prayers set to finish the card off.  I just forgot to take a picture of the inside!
