Feminine Sympathy

 Today I am sharing the cards I made for my hubby's Step Sister and a lady in our church who lost her last Aunt that she was very close to.  I went with the same thing I did with the guy cards, made two very similar just changed them up a bit.

I used some ephemera pieces and framed it with a die I cut from Vellum. 

  • Tim Holtz - Botanical Layers, TH93554
  • Carta Bella - Metropolitan girl papers
  • Hot off the Press - 4 Lacy Rectangle Frames die
  • Vellum
  • Spellbinders - Oval die
  • Stamped sentiment

On the next card I used the center portion of the frame above and used that for the base of the flowers.

  • Tim Holtz - Botanical Layers, TH93554
  • Kaisercraft - Sweet Pea paper
  • Hot off the press - 4 lacy rectangle frames - Vellum
  • Recollections - lace on a roll
  • Ki - Black gems
  • Spellbinder - oval die
  • stamped sentiment

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and letting me know you have,

Such outstanding sympathy cards. I was thinking about the backgrounds I made yesterday and asked myself if it was OK to make pretty and elegant sympathy cards. You answered that! These are so very beautiful with the beautiful euphemia, pop dots, and layout.
