A Masuline R.A.K.

For my readers that may not already know this, on Splitcoaststampers.com many people request R.A.K. cards, (Random Acts of Kindness) for people they know and love who need some kind words from strangers. This is a R.A.K. card I made for a man diagnosed with Stage IV Cancer, and unfortunately his father was also diagnosed with cancer at the same time. Its always hard to know what type of card to make and what to say, especially if you don't know the person's faith or personal taste, so I chose a masculine image and colors. I feel the image expresses my sorrow at hearing such news, and I think the sentiment is appropriate considering the circumstances.
To make my card, I used designer paper from 'The Pets Stack' at Michaels. The cardstock colors are all Stampin Up! 'Close to Cocoa', 'Chocolate Chip', 'Creamy Caramel', and 'Naturals Ivory'. The image is Stampin Up! 'For Father'. I used a cuttlebug embossing folder for the zig-zag stitch, and a button and ribbon for embellishment.
Please say a prayer for Willy today. Thank you. Amy
