Sympathy Cards

While I am sure there were many other things I should have been doing this weekend, I decided it was time to replenish my stock of sympathy cards. I like lining the envelopes and also stamping part of the design on the envelope, when I can. In this group of cards, I used a number of Spellbinders dies and an embossing folder. The gorgeous aqua paper with white flowers is by paper-source. It has fine lines of copper metallic going around the flowers, so I added copper brads. The paper with pink roses and black leaves is also by paper-source. I had some matching tan lighter weight paper so I made matching envelopes with my Martha Stewart scoring board. If you don’t have one, they are wonderful! The brown and cream papers are mostly stampin up. I got a set of sympathy stamps from JustRite that work with the clear ridged blocks. They really have some wonderful sentiments. They are mostly on the insides, though. I embossed the bird on the seafoam card with a paper-source embossing powder that is brown with flecks of aqua.
