We've had our share of losses this past month. This makes for an unusual time of support and encouragement to others. It is one of the reasons why my blog posts have slowed so considerably. With more than one reason to make them, I'll be sharing a few sympathy card designs with you. This set was made using my Concord & 9th You are Enough stamp set on Bristol paper so that I could color with the Zig Clean Color watercolor markers.
The Zig markers make coloring easy and the final product very pleasing - a small mercy that I can send to let loved ones know I care during their time of grief.
I kept the background of these cards simple - letting the flower be the focal point and a simple, heartfelt sentiment on the front. The flower is heat embossed with some aged gold powder - softening the edges and yet adding some definition to the card.
I'm sorry to say these are all used up and I had to make more. Yet, in our fast paced world where things move pretty fast it is one way to demonstrate care across the miles to spend time making something to express your love. That's what I can do now...
I'm entering these cards in the following challenges:
