Today I have a sympathy card. Not a cheery occasion, but if you need one, you want it to be beautiful and reflect your concern and thoughtfulness. I believe I have captured that with this cream sympathy card. With heavy weight cream cardstock, vellum and beautiful die cuts you can achieve this look too!

Directions: Cut a 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ card base from cream or ivory cardstock, cut one piece of vellum 5 1/4″ square, cut on piece of cream or ivory square 5″ x 5″. Take the ivory square and put the Marianne flourish on die cut and emboss. Line up your vellum and die cut piece and stamp your sentiment. Layer on lace and ribbon, adhere both pieces to the card base. Stamp, heat emboss and die cut the rose. Shape and layer, add the leaves and Cheery Lynn flourishes. Adhere to the card.
