Sympathetic Memories

This was my first public shot at a sympathy card and boy it's a whole different playing field. With sympathy cards you want the tone to be subtle and muted and therefore the colors and embellishments need to follow suit.
With this card I embossed the background and layered everything to give the card an extra definition. The colors I used include a green, gold, and grey. The follower was cut out using the Dive Weddings Cricut cartridge which is a fabulous cartridge with a lot of different options. Don't forget that you can also get a free cartridge by checking out the details here.

The stamp is from the CTMH "Big Hug" stamp set and is a wonderful one if you are looking for sentimental sayings. Make sure to check it out here. The stamp set offers 10 different sayings at a very affordable price.

"Measure a thousand times and cut once."
