I like this card, I was just trying to come up with new ideas for making cards and I thought it would be nice to build up my sympathy card batch.  I don't like making sympathy cards because the purpose of the card is used for sad occasions, but I have to remember that we are not born to stay on this earth forever.  To make this card, my base card is silver metallic card stock, the first layer is white card stock, top layer is silver metallic card stock and I used the tone on tone method.  I used a large classic nestabilities oval, embossed it (so that it would not cut out), stamped the lilies on it with versamark, added silver embossing powder and heat set it.  I used a smaller oval at the bottom and did the same as I did for the larger oval.  I added silver pearls and that's it.  Simple yet elegant sympathy card.  This card could be made for Christmas, birthdays, Easter, etc.  Hope you enjoy!

  1. Hi Nita, very pretty card.
    Yes the card is for a sad event but your card brings comfort to the receiver. I hope all is well with you and your family.
