Sending Love

Have you ever noticed how things go in threes?
This week, I've made a baby card, a sympathy card and a 90th Birthday card.
I realise that these particular cards have little in common, 
except that I rarely make cards for these events.

I will start off with the Sympathy Card
which was made for our elderly neighbour who passed away during the week.

I inked up the flower stem with Distress Markers, huffed and stamped directly onto the cardstock. The sentiment was inked with 'watering can' Archival Ink as was the inside sentiment.
A length of thread was wrapped around the top layer just under the images and secured on the back.  A small knot finishes it off nicely.
The top layer was then adhered to the card.

It's always sad hearing that someone you have known for a number of years has passed away.
Our sympathies and prayers are with his widow and their family.

Happy Crafting!


  1. This is a very tasteful and elegant sympathy card and one that I'm sure your neighbour's family will have appreciated at this difficult time. It's a lovely tranquil layout and beautifully set off by the knotted twine. Thanks for sharing with us at Less is More :)

  2. This is a beautiful image and a lovely CAS design which feels serene and elegant. The twine adds a lovely touch of texture too. Thank you for joining us at Less is More this week!

  3. Such a beautiful and graceful image and a very thoughtful sentiment Helen which I am sure has brought comfort to the family in their sadness. Your design is timelessly classic and the twine is a perfect finishing touch. Thank you so much for sharing this stylish card with us at Less is More.
