Sympathy Cards for Dayna's Boxed Set



My sister's birthday is in November. Last year, I made a custom card set for her. Needless to say, I didn't quite finish. Like many other things, I got bored after a bit. I owe her cards.

So this morning, as I was in the office creating, I decided that it would be way cooler to give her the one of a kind cards instead of the custom set, which is a little boring, especially because looking back at it, I don't like the paper I used.

I called her and asked her what kind of cards she thought she could use. Unfortunately, she said sympathy cards should be included. Sympathy cards are HARD to do. And I didn't have any already made, so I grabbed some supplies I thought I could use and got to work.

Card #1:
Stamps: Damask Designs (PTI), Mega Mixed Messages (PTI)
Ink: Memento Black
Paper: Stamper's Select White (PTI), Kraft (PTI), True Black (PTI)
Other: Saddlestitch Ribbon
Size: 4.25"x5.5"


Card #2:
Stamps: Damask Designs (PTI), Mega Mixed Messages (PTI)
Ink: Memento Black
Paper: Stamper's Select White (PTI), Kraft (PTI), Black and White Basics
Other: Vintage Buttons (PTI)

Very pretty cards. The layouts and papers are perfect for sympathy. Not to much, not to little. Nice job!

Amy, I inherited a TON of stamps from Jay's mom, but they're SU, which I don't use at all. I started buying PTI this past October, and I LOVE them. However, if it's Anya's, Leish is the expert. I think J's Knickknacks probably has the best prices, but they're in town. Munchkins in Mililani is more expensive, but more convenient.

These are great sympathy cards. Those are never fun or easy to make but you did a beautiful job with them!
