More than my Fair Share...

Gosh it seems like lately I've been making more than my fair-share of Sympathy cards.
I always find making these cards tough - I'm not sure if it's because my creativity turns itself off because it KNOWS WHY we're making the card (great how I talk about US, huh?), or if it's just because I don't know the 'RIGHT' elements for a sympathy card.......
In anycase, I'm very pleased with how this turned out. 
For some reason I really love the look of the dry embossing for these types of cards.
Image - Studio G Butterfly; Miscellaneous Thinking of You stamp
Papers - Bazzill Purple & Green, Black Standard Cardstock and Kraft Card Base
Techniques - Heat Embossing on Sentiment & Dry Embossing using Cuttlebug and embossing folder
Extra STUFF - Nestie frame for Thinking of you, Dew Drop Metallic Purple Ink, Versamark Ink, Bling, Ribbon, Stickles and White Embossing Powder
Be sure to pop over to Shelly's Images today - Audrey has a fabulous tutorial this wonderful Tuesday!
Well, off to see what you all have been up to lately! :)


  1. Great card, love the embossing and there is something to be said for a simple card to say that you are thinking of them. Sympathy cards are always tough, I think it's because no matter what you say or do the person you're giving it to has to go through the grieving process for themselves.

  2. Love the embossing on this card and the gems really stand out. Great card.


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my little sliver of Paradise.
