With Sympathy with Lydia

Hi there Lydia here with you today, and I'll be sharing with you one of the most-heartfelt cards that you can sent. Even though sympathy cards are the least liked cards to make and give, they are needed and can be of great comfort to the receiver.

For my card I stamped a floral bouquet using In Bloom: Elsa's Florals in a light grey ink. Even though this floral set has lots of winter florals it is great for all year round, roses are great for all occasions right?!?! I wanted my images to have a pencil-sketch look about them so I used a grey coloured pencil to trace the stamped images and add in some simple shading.

I added some sliver washi on the edge of my card blank just a little away from the edge to leave a thin strip of white too. For the sentiment I used one from A Tree For All Seasons, this is such a great set and has lots of different sentiments in a gorgeous font. 

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you liked my card and that you have a beautiful day. 

Hugs, Lydia xxx

  12. Look at the previous work of the Etobicoke florist and then decide whether his work is appreciative. If you already have a theme in mind or you have already decided which Etobicoke flowers you want to use in the wedding, then ask the florist if they have previously decorated any wedding using your selections.
