More sad news here. Another one of our clients died on New Year's Eve. He had a heart attack. We saw Mr. Ralph a few of weeks ago and he did not look very well then. Sympathy cards are not my favorite to make because I just never know what to say verbally, let alone written in a card. I tried to make this card very soft and subtle looking. I think that bold and bright is my usual style and so I have a hard time toning it down a bit. I don't even have many of the Soft Subtle papers. I had one piece of the Blush Blossom and Gable Green left so from a multi paper pack that's what I went with. I stamped the main flower image from Bud Basics (a two stampin' technique stamp set) in Blush Blossom (I actually had to use a marker because I don't have that color stamp pad) and the outline in Creamy Caramel. The background is a piece of Blush Blossom that I stamped the flowers from Shades of Nature (SU! retired) in Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. It's hard to see in this picture, but I like the effect. The sentiment is from Sincere Salutations stamped in Creamy Caramel on Blush Blossom and mounted on a piece of Gable Green and then I tied a piece of light pink narrow organdy ribbon around that piece before adhering to the card. The card is much prettier in real life, this photo doesn't do it justice.
