Post#199 – Simple Sympathy Card

Sympathy cards are not for show or decoration,but to convey condolences to the recipient…to send a small heartfelt message at the time when someone has lost a loved one…so I feel these cards do not require to be overly decorated or intricate…
I recently saw a few lovely sympathy cards on Pinterest.…and even though I find them extremely hard to make,I thought I should try at least one….
I started with a plain black card base….For the top layer I used a printed cardstock and stamped and clear heat embossed the image in the center….I then covered the whole top layer with tea dye distress ink….I think it’s called the resist technique…
I added a few thin strips of paper at the top and bottom of the prepared top layer and stamped the message near the bottom before adhering it to the card….I have used a few black adhesive pearls as the only embellishments on this card…
Hope you liked this card….Please let me know what you think…..
