With Sympathy

With Sympathy card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Verve Stamps
Here's my card for January's Viva la Verve sketch.  I used the layout to make a sympathy card.  These are hard to make on demand, so it's good to put together a few like this one to keep on hand for when they're needed.  I used a neutral, earthy color scheme with shades of green, cream, and kraft. The green on green leafy patterned paper I used for the large panel on the cardfront goes nicely with the wood veneer accent that I tucked beneath the sentiment panel.  The "with sympathy" sentiment is from Verve's Treasured Words set.  It just fit on the cream circle that I stamped it in on.  The finished panel was adhered to a pale mossy green card base that will be light enough to write an easy to see heartfelt and comforting message to the card's recipient.

Materials Used:
Treasured Words stamp set (Verve Stamps); Pistachio ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Ripe Avocado, Spring Moss, and Kraft cardstock, Pacific Vineyard patterned paper (Papertrey Ink); circle dies (Spellbinders); Recollections wood veneer leafy branch (Michaels); cream satin ribbon; foam tape
