With Sympathy

Just a quick post to share a sympathy card I made this evening. I had many cards to send out this past week, and I completely depleted my sympathy card supply. Time to replenish!

This is definitely a straightforward, clean and simple card, as I always think sympathy cards should be. I used the new sketch from Chick Challenges {with Ippity}, rotated on its side:

I'm also entering this in the {ippity} challenge to stamp on designer paper and the Unity Challenge to use stripes.

Both of my patterned papers are digital papers. The floral digital paper is from the free Echoes of Asia digital collection by Jessica Sprague, and the striped digital paper is from the Brown Damask digital paper pack by Shery K. Designs (I recolored the pattern to match the floral paper). And I used only {ippity}/Unity stamps, as required by all of these challenges.

Thanks so much for dropping by!

Stamps: Regal Greetings by {ippity}, All About Today by Unity
Cardstock:  Ripe Avocado, white by PTI
Patterned paper:  Echoes of Asia digital collection by Jessica Sprague, Brown Damask digital paper pack by Shery K. Designs
Ink: Spanish Moss Versafine, Deep Lagoon Versafine
Accessories: scoring board, sewing machine, border punch, foam tape

How sad to have to send so many sympathy cards in one week but this one is just right for replenishing the supply. Love the colours.

I'm so sorry that you had to make use of so many sympathy cards. I agree with you, they do have to be pretty simple & unfrilly. I love the non-traditional colours of this one, and the piercing & stitching detail is lovely without being overwhelming :)
