Hey there! Sympathy cards are not my favorite thing to make, but I had to make two this past weekend, so I want to share this card with the Comfort & Hope stamp set today and I will share the other one soon.
I just received the Dry Brush Background stamp a couple of weeks ago from the One-Day stamp sale, but I've been so busy playing with designer series paper that I almost forgot about it!
As with just about any card I make that I know I'm going to be giving one away, I make two. One of these will go in the mail tomorrow. I combined three sets to make this card with a bit of a masculine feel: Comfort & Hope, Dry Brush, and Swirly Frames.
I used Misty Moonlight, Soft Suede, and Very Vanilla for my color combo. I used the largest smooth and the largest scalloped Layering Circle Dies to cut the layers.
I added a multi-loopy bow to the edge of the circle with a glue dot.
I used the Swirly Frames circle on the front focal image and this swirly circles from the Comfort & Hope stamp set inside.
I love this sentiment: "sending you a paper hug"!
