CAS Sympathy...

For me, sympathy cards just have to be CAS... I don't like to add too much 'stuff', simple feels better to me... of course this is just my opinion!

I got the idea for this one on Pinterest - the flowers are stamped with clear Versamark ink for a subtle effect.



Items Used
Buff, lilac smooth & white linen cardstock from Papermill Direct
Hero Arts Wildflower Garden stamps
Sentiment - Stampin' Up
Versamark ink pad
Memento ink pad in Lilac Posies

Off for a little blogging catch up... Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

This is lovely, the colours are so calm and gentle. I've just had to make a sympathy card (so hard, even harder than male cards!) and I agree, CAS is the best way to go.

Beautiful CAS card, I agree, simplicity is good for sympathy cards. This is a great stamping technique, I've almost forgotten about it, have to try it again, thanks for the inspiration! :)
