Sympathy cards are unfortunately necessary.  Blessings of Home fit the need of necessity and still quite pretty.


Stampin' Up!, Blessing of Home, Peaceful Moments, Jackie Beers


Stamp sets

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.
