I needed to make a sympathy card and when I saw the challenge over at the Paper Players this week I knew I could use it to make the card. My friend who lost her father yesterday loves this style.
I pulled out a set I haven’t used in a long time, Everything Eleanor, because it has some beautiful vintage-style elements. I started by lightly painting a sheet of Typeset dsp with a layer of gesso to soften the newsprint. After that dried I added my elements.
I used a color scheme of Kraft and Lost Lagoon. The bottom layer of dsp is from the All Abloom dsp stack, and the sentiment is from Thoughts & Prayers.
Sympathy cards are always so hard to make. I like the soothing colors on this card and the pretty, muted images.
Enjoy your Friday! Thanks for stopping by!
