Today, I have a sympathy card to share. A good friend's father passed away in January after a long battle with Alzheimer's, such a heart breaking disease.
I had just ordered some stamps from Unity and there were several great sets which would work for a sympathy card. They were having a birthday sale in January, stamps were 50% or more off. This is one set I bought - "Possible, Not Easy". I love purple cone flowers. The script background is also from Unity stamps - "A Faithful Letter" which has a combination of scripture verses about God's faithfulness.
I love purple cone flowers, which were colored with copic markers. The script is a separate panel, finished with purple ribbon to hide the edge. I added some wavy stitched, which was a way to correct my first stitched pass which was a bit uneven. I haven't used the sewing machine in quite some time and I had to refill the bobbin which I dread, only took me an hour to get it to feed through without binding up - LOL. It was worth it I think. I love real stitching on a card.
Cardstock: PTI White & Amethyst Allure
Ink: Memento Black
Copic Colors: V20, 22, 17; YG91, 93, 95; E35
