Sympathy cards are unfortunately necessary. Blessings of Home fit the need of necessity and still quite pretty.
The sweet sentiment I chose is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set. This set has great “caring” type sentiments. I paired this with a subtle, but pretty, flower from the Blessings Of Home stamp set. To have the flower appear softer than usual, I used Petal Pink Light Stampin’ Blends to create a squiggled background. Then stamped the flower with Smoky Slate for a softer outline. To continue the soft, I colored only the leaves with Light Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blend. The Pale Papaya shows through for the flower petals.
The cardstock colors were chosen from the flower colors. I went with the Smoky Slate card base with a Soft Sea Foam layer. The light green helps the leaves to show off a bit more. On cards with this type layout, the sentiment is not normally the star. But I wanted it to be on this one. So it is stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black for a brighter appearance. The card is finished with a scattering of small Pearls.
