Last month I had to say goodby to a very old friend who died of cancer. It was a devastating loss. She was such a beautiful woman; always smiling, always helping people. She left behind her husband of thirty two years. It was a hard funeral, and even harder to see her loving husband deal with the magnitude of his loss. But being people of faith, he said "I won't be far behind her. I will see her again soon!". I replied back "I think we all will, as I know Jesus is coming back soon!"
I handmade a sympathy card for my friend's husband. I wanted to keep it clean and simple, yet elegant and masculine at the same time.
To make the card, I chose neutral, masculine colors. The card base is "Creamy Caramel". I stamped a retired Stampin' Up! background stamp called "Scrolls" in Versamark on the caramel card stock then sprinkled gold embossing powder on it and heat set it using a heat gun.
The sentiment was stamped the same way, but on white card stock. The image is from retired Stampin' Up! "Brighter Tomorrow". I put in two eyelets on each short end and ran an iridescent gold ribbon through. I edged the sentiment panel with a gold gel pen.
I used a corner punch to round two of the corners then edged the Creamy Caramel panel with a gold gel pen too.
Have A Great Day! Amy
