Another Sympathy Card

Sadly I had to make another sympathy card. This one is for my mother-in-law because my father-in-law passed away last weekend. It was very sad because my MIL was not even home at the time. She was in Minnesota with my nieces when it happened. But now everyone is back in Wisconsin celebrating his life. The funeral was yesterday and, though I was sad to have missed it, I am rejoicing that he is now with the Lord.

Anyway, I got some fun new SU! goodies from a friend of mine that I finally got to use. (Thanks Allyson!) My card is very simple, but shouldn’t sympathy cards be simple? I used my new SU! embossing folder and butterfly dies, added a few Mini Sparkles from CTMH and stamped a sentiment from PTI to finish it off. I hope it brings a little comfort to my sweet MIL.

Supplies used:
Stamps: With Sympathy (PTI)

Paper: White cardstock (PTI), Crystal Blue cardstock (CTMH)
Inks: Cocoa (CTMH)
Elegant Lines Embossing Folder (SU!), Beautiful Wings Embosslits Dies
