Simple Sympathy Cards


OK... if you follow my blog or even know me a little... you will know that SIMPLE is not a word I use... I am unfamiliar with what it means. Blingy, over the top and embellished to the max... that I know! I made these simple sympathy cards using sentiments from DRS. I LOVE the really huge assortment of sympathy stamps they have available. This is never an easy card to make because usually the person getting the card is sad.But, when I lost my beloved Father... these cards meant the world to me...

I embossed the background on the pink one and them I used my nesties to cut out the shapes,added the sentiment tied the ribbon, added the rose and that was it.


For this one... I used the lily corner on Kraft
paper with versamark.Then again with the
nesties and the sentiment.I really like the way these came out and I would love for you all to go and check out DRS stamps and you will see the wonderful variety of sentiments for cards just like these! Thanks for stopping by... and even if they are not easy to make... send the card... you NEVER know what it will mean to someone!
