Sympathy Card

One of our new members of the RSA Stamping Group lost her husband suddenly last week. A card was all I could offer together with my prayers.
I had just been visiting 'Curt's World' blog and loved a sympathy card he had just turned out. I did not have the same stamps and changed the colour, but the layout and theme is cased from him. The background was a stamp called Starburst from CHF and the foremost image is Dark Room Door. Both were stamped with Versamark and embossed using white ep. The sentiment - no name brand,was stamped in black, rounded the corners and attached side on - new one for me and I like it! I wrapped the top image with white seam binding from dear Amelia, who so kindly sent me some to play with. She will be selling seam binding in several colours, so do pop over and pay her a visit.
I astounded myself with this card. It only took me 1 hour instead of one day!


  1. I enlarged your picture to get a better look and this is a really beautifully crafted card.
    perfect for a sympathy card.
    have just bought a heat gun so have been experimenting with embossing.
    I think it takes a bit of practice.
    Well done with this card Moz...

  2. A lovely card Moz. and just so perfect for a sympathy card. I have had to make a few this past week, and I do struggle with them. Will keep this in mind for future. By the way, just got some of the seam binding today from Amelia, thanks to seeing it here on your blog and can't wait to use it.
