It’s always a sad day when you learn that someone you know has suffered the loss of a parent. When clients or friends of the attorneys I work with experience such a loss, I provide the sympathy cards (handmade, of course).
I had a late day at the office today and didn’t really have a lot of time to sit down and create a sympathy card from scratch so I sifted through a huge box of swap cards from various Stampin’ Up! events (Convention, Regionals) and found a card front that I felt was perfect for transforming into such a card.
This card was designed by Susan Rodgers (from somewhere in Oregon). When Susan designed this card she didn’t include a sentiment on the front.
I knew I wanted to use the Love & Sympathy stamp set so I quickly inked up the sentiment, stamped on card stock, did a quick punch, sponged the edges and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Super easy (thanks Susan for doing all the hard work and providing me such a beautiful layout)!
I hope this card brings a little ray of sunshine into Buck’s day when he gets this card in the mail.
