Sympathy Card - 100 day challenge - blog challenge


I find these cards to be the hardest to make, so I don't tend to have any in the box and then end up making one in a hurry when needed :-(  So in line with my new ambition to fill the 'gaps' in my card box, here is the first one.  I am sharing with the current Retro Rubber challenge - Anything Goes.
The stamp is at least three years old and is from Stamps by Chloe.  I have actually been looking for it for a while as it got 'lost' during our move in 2019, then found it in a box it shouldn't have been in, whilst looking for something else!!  I stamped and coloured several images :-)
I am also trying cards in different shapes at the moment, so this became an octagon.  I used silver mirri for the mat and the sentiment - impossible to photograph as always! - and coloured the image with SU markers.  The butterfly and sentiment are die-cut, but I can't recall either brand.  The centre is a separate circle, embossed in a folder.

  2. This is amazing! The wreath and butterfly would be fabulous in any setting but the unusual shape and silver frame really set it apart. Sympathy cards are indeed difficult to make but you've done a magnificent job. Thank you for sharing with us at Retro Rubber Challenge.
