Sympathy Card

I have been looking over my card rack in the last week, and noticed that it's getting awfully lean for my customers.  I set it out at classes and clubs, and it's an easy way for people to pick up a card or two for the month.  I noticed especially that I am out of sympathy cards, so that is one of the cards I put together today. I wanted to use the inspiration from Authentique because I don't often use blues.  And I don't know why because I love them!

This is the card I came up with using Authentique's Genuine collection and a few CTMH supplies:

The banners are cork, and I cut them from larger pieces of the Color Ready Evergreen Shapes.   The sentiment is from the Words of Comfort stamp set.  I have never inked the Color Ready Seam Binding Ribbon with outdoor denim ink, but boy, did I like the result. As long as I was sponging, I distressed the edges of all the pieces with outdoor denim.

Thanks for stopping by today!


This is beautiful. Unfortunately, this is the week I have to use 2 of mine. One of my father's cousins passed away mid-week and then my husband's Grandfather passed away Friday night. Their funerals are a day apart. The ironic thing is that Grandpa was at Pearl Harbor (Navy) when it was attacked, and he died 71 years to the day afterwards. God has a plan for all of us, and this has never been more clear to me than now. (Don't feel sad; Grandpa lived to be 95!)
