With Sympathy

Hello everyone.

Today i want to show you a card that i needed for my wonderful friend Jacque. Some of you might now that she and her family had to carry a loss of a beloved family member. I would love to give the Beddingfield family my heartfelt condolences.

Usually i must say i like to purchase sympathy cards just because it is such a sensitive situation and i do not want to set a wrong tone with colors or even image. However.. i know Jacque ADORES Magnolia stamps and for some reason i felt confident with the card i made for her.


The image is water colored and on the flower petals is some Stardust Stickles unfortunately it does not show very well. Stamping the sentiment on the side of the stem was an after thought.. i had fist the sentiment tucked on a tag underneath the bow but than the right side felt empty … boy oh boy my hands were shaking when i stamped it on… cause i could not take the image off the card anymore – once i glue it down with my score tape.. that stuff sticks :-)


Stamps:   Daisy can be purchased In Sweden in the Alvin and Alva section and the sentiment is by Stampin up
Papers: Basic Grey “Origins”
Embellishments: Stampin up, Making Memories, Stickles, Scor tape
(i use for my crafts the thin and  1/8) Coloring: Stampin up ink refiller (So Saffron, Barely Banana, Glorious Green, Going Grey)

{PS if you like to leave Jacque a little note.. i think she is feeling a little better now.. i have waited a bit with showing this card on my blog.

Hugs ya all
