Sympathy Card

I really hate making these kinds of cards but it seems like I'm needing more and more of them.  I need to spend a week making up a batch to have on hand.  I saw this card with the dogwood and branches on a website and looked and looked for a digital image that would resemble the stamp but didn't find anything.  So...I grabbed my pencil and drew what I thought would pass for acceptable.  Its not great but doesn't look too bad.  The background paper is from AC, the silver is some I've had for eons.  My first thought was too just use it to see how the branches printed off and I liked the look so well, that I just kept it.  I did a double cut of a few of the leaves to hang over the frame.  The frame was a SVG cut I had in my stash when I still used the Cricut.  The font is Great Vibes.  The black rhinestones I picked up at the convention and wish I'd spent more money at that booth.  They were selling a huge sheet of rhinestones for $1...I got about 6 different colors.  The grid paper is from Studio Calico.

Thanks for looking!

Pin It!


  1. Sad but lovely card.

    I thought you said you couldn't draw.

    Great job on this Mary. Lovely.

  2. Thank you....I really can't draw....not like people draw. If its pretty simple and I can have a drawing in front of me, I can usually come up with something close by copying. Not tracing but copying. The flowers were easier for me than the leaves. I don't like how they turned out but they looked ok by being mostly covered up by the flowers. I just wish I could do it on the scans aren't too good. I've thought about purchasing a pen tablet but not sure how much I would really use it or even if I could use it. I do LOTS of erasing when I draw...LOL
    I was hoping my cards might draw a few more hits to our blog but its not happened yet. I don't know why I want people to look but it would be nice to know that someone liked what we
