More Sympathy Cards

We arrived back safe and sound from Brisbane ready for the children to head back to school on Monday. I think I need a holiday from being so busy on our holiday!!!! There was a lot of walking and a lot of driving involved.

Anyway, as in my previous post I was updating my stash of cards and needed a bit of variety so ended up making a few sympathy and get well cards to have on hand.

Here is the first card I have to show you:-

Now I have to tell that this card is mostly a complete CASE from a very lovely card made by the very talented Nikki Stalker. You can find Nikki's card here. I borrowed this lovely Brocade Basics stamp set from a friend and just had to re-create this card. I ended up using Mellow Moss as the base for my card followed by a lovely piece of DSP from Parisian Breeze then followed by a layer of Chocolate Chip and stamped the image on white card. I finished it off with a gorgeous piece of ribbon that I had in my stash.

And for the next:-

This card was also a CASE but unfortunately I can't for the life of me find the creator to give them credit. If anyone recognises this similar card please know that I was totally inspired by your creation. For this card I used Pink Pirouette as the base card followed by a piece of DSP from a pack I just can't remember at the moment (think it might have been Bella Rose). I have again gone with the lovely Brocade Basics and have stamped up the leaves in Certainly Celery and the flowers in Pink Pirouette.

So there we have it, a couple of Sympathy cards to have on hand, hopefully I won't need to use them for some time.

Happy stamping,
