Hi Friends! It’s me, Tina, Frenchie’s Passport Pal, with another guest post. We usually get to make happy, cheerful cards, but sometimes life throws sadness our way. Unfortunately, I needed to make a couple of sympathy cards for two special women in my life – one just lost her husband and my other friend just lost her mother. It’s so incredibly heartbreaking when those we love pass away and I’m so glad I can at least show my love for these two ladies with a hand stamped card. Sometimes even the simplest gesture can mean the most, don’t you think?
Due to a very busy schedule right now (I’m in the middle of moving to another province) I could only squeeze in a few minutes to stamp these cards. All in all it only took me about 10 minutes to make both of these cards. But I think it just goes to show that you don’t have to spend hours making a card. And just receiving a hand stamped card can be like a hug in the mail for someone who really needs it.
The base of the card is Soft Sky card stock (#131203) and Wild Wasabi Card Stock (#108641). To finish I took my Wild Wasabi marker (Soft Subtles Markers #131263) and added some colour to the leaves and applied Crystal Effects (#101055) on top. I then set the card aside for the Crystal Effects to dry.
