This has been a rough month. I know too many people who have lost a loved one this month. All of which are sudden losses. When I originally made this card for my dear friend Kathy, I could not image having to mass produce this card. :(
I used a simple floral yellow patterned cardstock from Cosmo Cricket. The paper is two-sided. One side is the main pattern paper on the card. The other side is matted with Soft Suede card stock from Stampin' Up! I used a leaf die and my Big Shot to cut out the leaves in Barely Banana card Stock and a textured Going Grey card stock, all from Stampin' Up! The sympathy stamp is a loose stamp I had in my stash. I stamped 'with deepest sympathy' in Going Grey, on whisper white card stock, matted that onto Barely Banana card stock, and then matted it again on Going Grey textured card stock. All these papers are from Stampin' Up! The ribbon is a dark grey from a 'big-box' craft store.
My heart goes out to these many families. These are sudden losses, and no one could prepare for their devastation.
