With Sympathy

Hi Everyone!

I hope that you are enjoying your weekend.  I've been really busy with work lately, but I wanted to take a moment to share this card with you.  This is a sympathy card that I made for a close family friend who recently lost her husband.  I hope she finds some comfort in knowing that we are all thinking of her.

The card base is made from kraft card stock, I then layered it with this beautiful paper from DCWV Garden Party Stack, and the lace border was made with my EK Success border bunch.  The ribbon is from Michaels.  I added two sweet Prima flowers and dressed them up with an antique brad from Stampin-up.  I stamped the K. Andrews sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink from Stampin-up.  I also used two other sentiments from this K. Andrews sympathy set on the inside.  I made the envelope using my Martha Stewart score board,  This is the first time I made an envelope with the corner tool.  It was easier than I expected.  I will definitely use this more often!  The dimensions are slightly larger so there is plenty of room for a card with some dimension.  I also lined the envelope with some pretty paper from the K&Co Designer paper stack to make it a little more special.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
