Wildflower sympathy

Our niece's on my husbands side of the family had both lost their last Grandparent, their Grandpa and these are the cards I made for them.  I had just recently bought the Quick Cards Magazine and in this issue it came with both a stamp set and border embossing folder that I thought would work well for sympathy cards.

First one I embossed my border, scored an area above that I could add the sentiment and ran my ink pad over the embossed area to highlight it.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop in today, and thanks so much for leaving your comments, I so appreciate it!

Connie, these are both perfect for sympathy cards. I never have that good of luck coloring the embossing like you did. Your's is neat and perfect. Beautiful cards for such a sad occasion.

So sorry for the need. But, these are beautiful and will surely bring some comfort.

Oh, Connie, two absolutely beautiful cards. Perfect for sympathy. I really love the neutrals. Your second card is so pretty with the image stamped on the subtly patterned designer paper. I might have to start buying the Quick Cards magazine! You've already influenced me to buy the Seraphine Laurel. What's next?

Both cards are perfect for the occasion. I thought the first one was a grass die cut, not inked embossing, it adds a lovely touch, and you have done it so well.
