Orchid Sympathy Card

Hi there 🙂 Today, I have some inspiration from Aurora Wings. We have a Facebook challenge every month, starting on the first Monday of the month, and it’s always ATG, with either a finished project or coloring, old or new!! Come join us at our Facebook Group!! I had a big order for sympathy cards, recently, so decided to go with something simple and elegant, using the beautiful Orchid Border (found exclusively HERE in the digi store). I colored it with my Copics, then fussy cut the bottom edge.

I’m not much of one for using pink, generally, but this image just called for it. I embossed a pink piece of CS, then layered the image over it. A simple, die cut sentiment was added near the bottom. I called it finished at this point, as I like to keep sympathy cards simple and clean.

I’d like to enter this in the following challenges:

A Perfect Time To Craft Open Challenge – #8 ATG

Dream Valley Challenges – #207 Hand Colored Image

Through the Craft Room Door – ATG for the week of Aug. 20th

  1. This is a beautiful card, Susan! I love the soft pink colour scheme – it’s not a usual colour for a sympathy card, but it works very well here! Thanks for joining in at Dream Valley.
