Sympathy Cards

Today's cards were inspired by three people: Michele and Cornelia who both played with the colors from the current Color Throwdown , and Maria who reminded me that I needed a sympathy card. And because it's always good to have one on hand I made two. Thank you, ladies, for the inspiration!




Stamps: Inkadinkado (branch), Alexandra Renke (sentiment) - thanks to Elisabeth from aufspapiergebracht for this stamp!
Die: Memory Box (bird)





Stamps: Inkadinkado (branch), Penny Black (background script), PTI (sentiment)
Die: Memory Box (bird)


Entering this at the

Color Throwdown #474

Both cards are colored so softly and have a beautiful CAS design, Susanne! They're perfect for the occasion. Love the warped sentiment along the rim of the circle (the first card), and the subtle background stamping of the second one. Hideko :-)

Das ist ja eine wundervolle Trauerkarte!!!
Wenn man die ansieht, ist einem schon nicht mehr so traurig ums Herz.
Liebe Grüße, Flo

Both of these are wonderful sympathy cards. You've used the colors perfectly, and your design is fabulous. I might have to CASE these for future reference, then make them my "go-to" sympathy card design. They are really lovely. Bev (Day after tomorrow!!!!!!)

Beautiful, Susanne! Such a lovely and peaceful scene - perfect for a sympathy card. I love the combination of the stamped image with the die cut bird.

Susanne!!!! I just came back to revisit this gorgeous card - OH how I wish I could express how surprised I was to read that I IN SOME WAY inspired this beauty - must have been my birds? xoxo
