Embossed Sympathy Card
My husband’s uncle passed away suddenly, and I needed to make several sympathy cards for his family.
I made this card with two of my favorite stamp sets. The background was made with a stamp from the “Inspiration Mosaic” set by Gina K Designs, and the greeting and floral branch were both from the “Thoughts and Prayers” set by Stampin’ Up. The images were heat embossed on Gina K Pure Ivory card stock with Versamark Ink and Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder. The background panel was embossed with a 5×7″ folder called Basketweave by Darice. The ivory panels were matted on Gina K Kraft card stock.
I used my MISTI to initially help me line up the stamps where I wanted them and then was able to stamp multiple times if needed to insure I had a perfect image before adding the embossing powder. Also, I needed to make a number of these cards, and I was able to duplicate my design easily with the MISTI.
Thanks for checking out my card project.

Elegant and softly designed for the purpose of the card. Fitting sentiment.
WOW, I really like this, simple design and elegant!
The CAS style makes this so very elegant with all the gold embossing. Truly a beautiful sympathy card design.
