Midweek greetings! I've been working on a card order -- mostly sympathy, get well, and thinking of you. Although my friend says she doesn't mind extra postage, I try to keep her cards mailable with one postage stamp. However, they do have to look crafty, which is why she comes to me in the first place. In an effort to make some quick progress I started out simple, creating four cards with this design:
As stated in my title, it's suitably masculine. She cards everyone so I can't forget the guys. Ordinarily I shy away from black for sympathy cards, but in this case it was the best effect for the silhouette die.
Spellbinders Bird Call die, layered and matted on some old Prima designer paper. A very old Just Rite sympathy sentiment set which remains an all-time favorite. The leaf sprig is Die-namics Wild Greenery.
The next photo is the same design, different card. Maybe you'll notice the slight color variation. A little more pink in this one. The first card has a textured white base while this card uses Neenah 110 lb white. The black silhouette is layered on white with a little showing at the top edges for highlight.
Inside they all look like this:
Really and truly simple but there's something about it I like. If it helps anyone with a quick idea for a masculine sympathy card, then it was worth the effort to post it.
I'll see you again on Flowerful Friday. Till then... have a happy day!
