I really should make more sympathy cards. Not because of the expectation of someone keeling over, but for the fact that I actually like making them! It's a really serene and calming experience. Even with two kids arguing over who is going on the Wii going on in the background! So when I saw the Charisma Cardz challenge which is:

Sympathy / Sorry

I just had to join in! The stamp is Anita's and I've used golden vellum and offcuts of the card blank to make the layers, using Nestabilities and a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The lilies are from my stash and I've had them absolutely ages - bought on a whim (probably because they were cheap) but knew I'd use them one day! The organza ribbon is also from my stash.

  • Dies: Nestabilities
  • Embossing: Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls
  • Sentiment: Anita's stamp
  • Everything else: My stash


  1. Lovely. Just my kind of simple card. Could be used for many occasions as well by adapting the sentiment... another good idea I may have to 'borrow' from you Ruth. :)
