You know, sympathy cards are the hardest cards to make. No, masculine sympathy cards are the hardest cards to make. I just don’t know what to stamp when it comes to cards for the men and sympathy cards…. well, it’s just plain hard.
I needed a card for a friend who lost his grandmother and well, I’m embarrassed to say, I let time get away from me. Please tell me I’m not alone on this one. Someday I will learn to make up a stack of sympathy cards so that I can send it right away and not procrastinate.
I created this card very quickly and I used the Flash Card system (although I needed a little extra piece of Very Vanilla for the sentiment and on the inside). One stamp set, Love & Sympathy, was a great stamp set for my card. I know flowers aren’t very masculine but the darker colors seemed to work nicely so I went with it.
- Baked Brown Sugar – 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″
- Mossy Meadow – 4 1/4″ x 2 3/4″ (Flash Card)
- Very Vanilla – 4″ x 2 1/2″ (Flash Card)
- Very Vanilla – scrap for sentiment
- Very Vanilla – 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside of card)
