Sympathy Card

Sympathy cards are something you never want to send, but if you have too, sending a hand stamped one is so meaningful.  It is hard to decide what type of image I want to stamp on my card, but I thought the simplicity of the birds in a tree along with the sentiment was appropriate.

My card base of Marina Mist Card Stock was embossed with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder and then layered with a piece of Basic Black Card and Whisper White Card Stock.  I used Memento Black Ink for my large images and the background images were stamped with Marina Mist and So Saffron  Ink.  A piece of Basic Black 3/8" Satin Ribbon was placed around this layer before I added it to my card.

The inside sentiment reads '"Praying for friends to comfort you, faith to uphold you, and loving memories to heal your heart".  The Thoughts & Prayers Stamp Set has been around for awhile, but one of my favorite sets for Sympathy, Thinking of you, and Get Well Cards.
