Today”s post features four Sympathy Cards that I made this weekend. I really don’t like having to make Sympathy cards, but it seems that I need more and more of them these days. Sad, but true. So, when I make them, I try to make several of them at a time. I used Basic Gray, Whisper White, and Elegant Eggplant for all cards. These four cards are very similar, but not exactly…..
Version #1 features Basic Gray Satin Ribbon and “Sharing in your Sorrow” from the Thoughts and Prayers Stamp Set. I used one of the new Antique Brads in the center of the Medallion. I’m lovin’ these brads!
Version #2 features a different center for the Medallion, different greeting from “Teeny Tiny Wishes” and different punches. To make the center, I stamped the Medallion on a scrap piece of paper and punched out the center with the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch. I punched an Elegant Eggplant 1 3/8″ Circle and mounted them with Dimensionals. Another one of the a Antique Brads is in the center.
Version #3 is similar to #1, minus the ribbon. The center is slightly different — I added a 1″ circle of Elegant Eggplant and another style of the Antique Brads. You have now seen THREE out of FIVE of the Antique Brads. The other 2 designs have more of a brown/copper type of finish. I did not think they looked good on this card’s color scheme. However, all 5 designs are really nice, and you get 20 of them for $5.95.
