A Sympathy Card…

Hello Everyone, Welcome Back!

I don’t know about you, but I make these kinds of cards up ahead of time…I just

do not like making them when they are needed. I think there are just too many emotions

that one goes through during this time, that you just can’t think about

making these cards when you need them.

I was going through a drawer of punched out shapes that I set aside, when

I make them and then decide not to use them. I came across the flourish, circle, and

the dragonfly. I started placing them to make a card front and I came across this

for a layout…I them thought, it could only be used for a Sympathy card!


Here is my Card!


Simple, yet elegant!

Here is a close-up of the Dragonfly…


I used Clear Wink Of Stella on the Dragonfly and also on parts of the Flourish!


Here is the inside of my Card!


I stamped off once, then stamped the flourish.

I then stamped the inside sentiment over the flourish.
