With Sympathy

The father of one of my acquaintances pasted away last month, so I made this sympathy card for her.

I don't have much practice in making Sympathy cards, for which I am grateful, but I do love the way this one turned out! It could easily be a wedding card, instead.

After stamping the branch image in black Stazon ink, I punched and attached textured black flowers using the Trio flower punch. Pearl Jewels are perfect for the centers of these little flowers, and help contrast the white and black even more.

A simple knot of Organza Ribbon just above the scalloped edge gives it an even more polished look.

Stamps: Thoughts & Prayers
Cardstock: Whisper White, Textured Basic Black
Ink: Stazon Black (a permanent ink)
Embellishments: Organza Ribbon, Pearl Jewels
Punches: Trio Flower Punch, Scallop Oval, Med. Oval, Scallop Border
