I haven't needed to use a sympathy card....touch wood, but decided I should have a few on hand just in case. I wanted something simple and generic, but definitely showed comfort. The heart bouquet that I used as a background stamp was purchased at Walmart. It was in a package with a sentiment stamp "Merci" for only 99cents Canadian. Now who could go wrong with that...especially since I am working at a French Immersion school right now. 99cents for two stamps....rock on. Wish I could find other great deals like that. Anyhow, this card also uses SU French Script background stamp that I used as a panel on the right side of the card. I simply torn the edges to give the weathered/used effect. (Not sure the actual term or technique for this). The sentiment was stamped onto a panel which was wrapped with hemp and tied through a button. I thought that the card was missing something, so I decided to stamp the heart bouquet again and use it as part of the main image. The colours used were SU Blue Bayou and SU Wild Wasabi. Thanks for looking!!
