Thoughts and Prayers, Sympathy Card

Here is a set that is soon to retire. It's been around a very long time. I have not had to use it a lot but it was a nice go to set for a quick card. Unlike birthdays, you know when they are coming so you don't often have to make a quick card but sympathy cards are different.  I'm hoping that what replaces it will be just as nice or better!

To make this card I used a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  I cut two strips 1-5/8" x 3-7/8" using the "Fresh Florals" Decorative Series Paper with the 2018-2018 in colors.  I cut two strips of Tranquil Tide card stock 1-3/4" x 4". I taped those two layers together.  Then I taped those layers to the card front. 

Next I cut a 3-3/4" x 2-1/2" piece of Whisper White and I stamped the image on it using Tranquil Tide ink.  The words are from the same set and I also stamped them using Tranquil Tide ink.  I cut a 3-7/8" x 2-5/8" piece of Tranquil Tide for the layer.  I taped those two pieces together. 

I tied a ribbon around the card front and knotted it.  I added Dimensionals to the image layer and set it in place using Dimensionals.  And that was it.  A pretty quick and simple sympathy card.  Though the flowers are pretty enough to convert this into a thank you, get well, birthday, Mother's Day or a thinking of you card.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
