My stash of sympathy cards is down to just one card, so I thought I ought to make some more to have on hand. It's doubly hard to make these cards if you have to do it in a hurry, so I always like to have a few done ahead of time.
The poppy image was stamped with purple Versafine ink onto a lightly speckled white cardstock. I shaded the oval a bit with some of the ink. Then, I used only a pearl in the center of the poppy and three below the sentiment for embellishments.
I always think that a deep purple, like this one, elicits a feeling of peace and strength. Those are exactly the kinds of feelings I wish to convey to the receiver of a sympathy card, so I think the color works well for this purpose.
While it's always sad to think we will need these cards, I feel that it is so important to have them on hand.
Thanks for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
