Embossed Sympathy







I wanted to make a card for The Sisterhood of Crafters this week. It is an easy challenge where they just want 'embossing'...wet, dry, use a stylus, etc.  I went with black and white  and made a sympathy card. Thankfully, I don't need one at the moment but like to have some on hand.

I'm using a Cuttlebug Textile embossing folder. I popped up the top panel. The stamp set is Stampin'Up! Thought and Prayers. It is perfect for this type card. My paper is PTI white cardstock and I've used black ribbon to separate the partial embossing. The pearls were added and it is finished.

 It's a short post today. I have a lot to do....sorry to say it won't involve much crafting. . Hope your day is a good one.

This is such a pretty sympathy card! The sharp contrast of black & white looks stunning! I should use this gorgeous stamp set more often than I do!

Simply elegant. These are hard cards to make, & this one is stunning. Gonna see if I can pin it so that I can get back to it as I'm going to be needing to make a few of this type I'm afraid, and I really love this one. Loved the sentiment also...comforting, but not intrusive. TFS & Hugs
