Sympathy cards, I've found, are not my forte - I mean, where do you start?
Having asked the lovely ladies of MSE for inspiration for images. Trisha (AKA Crafty Granny) sent me images of Calla Lillies (thanks so much), which I had intended to use, until Louisa (AKA DawnTeabag) pointed to a card she had made on her blog here. This gave me just the inspiration I needed (thankyou too xxx).
I have simply used two cuttlebug embossing folders, and placed ribbon to hide the mark the edge of the folders left. This is complemented by the scalloped oval nestie onto which the sentiment is mounted. It's a very simple and understated card - but hopefully it is suitable.
The cardstock, paper, and sentiment are from Craftwork Cards.
Thanks for looking - Have a great day xxx
