Masculine Sympathy

Published by at 3 46 pm under Stampin' Up! Projects,Sympathy Cards

This is a masculine sympathy card. I incorporated it into Julia’s Challenge at SCS today to either make or incorporate a tag into your project. The main sentiment circle is a tag. A combination of 3 SU sets were used, all retired. Here it is:


This card is 8.5 x 4″ and fits in a business sized envelope. The base is Barely Banana, the image is watercolored with refills and an Aquapainter The sentiment tag is Pop Dotted up. There is a twine run through eyelets on the decorative dividing bar. I wanted to make a sympathy card that wasnot dark and drabbutthathad some brightness/life to it. And I always like this sentiment from All I Have Seen for sympathy cards.

  • Stamps: Calms Seas, All I Have Seen, Peace and Comfort (inside), all retired. With Sympathy by Stampendous.
  • Paper: Barely Banana, Black, Watercolor.
  • Ink: Versa Fine Onyx Black, vavious reinkers to watercolor.
  • Accessories: Aquapainter, Eyelets, Cropadile, 2″ Circle Punch, Twine, Red Sticky Tape, Pop Dots.

Thanks much for looking!!! My Stamp Simply Challenge will be up in the morning — hope you can play!!!

    Wonderful, comforting sympathy card. Your coloring is beautiful on this.
    The corded divider piece is a very impressive accent element. And I agree with you, that sentiment verse is perfect for a sympathy card. Beautifully done.
