With Sympathy

Hi!  It's Misti again!

It is hard to believe that my 2 months as Guest DT has come to an end.  It just flew by!  It has been such a pleasure working with Beverly and her DT. Thank you so much, Beverly! 

I have one more card to show you.  I have a hard time with sympathy cards, but an even harder time making them ahead of time for some reason.  I have been telling myself for awhile that I needed to try to have at least one on hand. Instead of making this a thinking of you or a praying for you card, I used the sympathy sentiment.  

Supplies used:
Layering Swatches #2 - I used the Black
Baby Rhinestones - Black

As you can see in the photo, I used black and white panels in different sizes for the layers for a great classic look. 

After I applied a strip of gold and black paper from the  French Country 6 x 6 paper pad by Graphic 45 to a black panel, I wrapped the Seam Binding - Chalk White around the back panels of the card. Then I attached these layers to the base of the card.

Using the beautiful  With Sympathy - JustRite stamp, I colored it using the  Tim Holtz Water Brush and markers listed above. Applying the color with the water brush, gives the roses and leaves a soft and delicate coloring.

Since the card had a lot of rectangular panels I decided to soften the lines by using the Classic Scalloped Ovals Large dies to add my sentiment. 

The final touch was to use the sentiment stamp also found in the With Sympathy by JustRite stamp set and added the Baby Rhinestones - Black just above and below the sentiment.

I have enjoyed my time as a guest designer and hope I was able to inspire you with my postings!

Congratulations Misti! I'm glad you will be a wonderful addition to the design team.

Love the card. It simple, yet elegant and just perfect for a sympathy card. Black and white is always a great classic for a sympathy card and the red roses add the love to the family.
