on to the post now... i must say that sympathy cards are probably the hardest card to make. it's that fine balance of trying to add a bit of cheer but keeping it more solemn as well. recently a friend's family member passed away and i needed to make 3 sympathy cards for the family...each family member being in a completely different age group - 20's, 30's and 50's...and two for females and one a bit more masculine for a guy and his family. i also wanted to just use the same main sentiment and just change up the inside sentiment.
all sentiments, the impression plate and cardstock are from papertrey ink. the papers are from various 6x6 paper pads. the mehndi stamp was stamped with chalk inks. the tulips colored with copic and prismacolor makers.
