Pin It Now!
In this case, a young man sadly died very young and in a small town, it seems like my coworkers and I knew more than one person devastated by the tragedy. I didn't personally know anyone involved, but I knew I needed to make not one but two sympathy cards.
Medallion is on the retirement list, so I wanted to use it another couple times before it disappeared. Ordinarily, I would have kept it for my personal crafting, but I have found that Hello Doily is an effective substitute, so I probably won't be keeping this one.
I made this card very simply (for sympathy cards, I think simple is best) by stamping the Medallion in Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink on Naturals White Cardstock. I like stamping on both the Naturals White and Naturals Ivory - the paper has a slight texture, so your image comes out slightly weathered looking. I added the sentiment from Curly Cute in Basic Gray and an Antique Brad. A few simple layers completed the card.
I'll share the second sympathy card tomorrow.
