So Sorry...Sympathy Cards

I was all out of Sympathy cards and needed some more to send and have on hand so yesterday I just took the time to get some made.  I used some retired paper (still have lots of it) and decided to make this set of cards in a tri fold.

This is real simple yet it is so pretty.

You cut your cardstock at 4 1/4" X 11" and you score the long portion at 5 1/2" and again at 2 3/4". I cut the inside white cardstock at 4 1/2" X 3 1/2" and the portion on the front (largest portion) is 3 1/2" X 3 1/2".  I also used an old retires SU! set for the rose in the background (Fifth Avenue Floral) and used a new, available stamp set for the sentiment (So Sorry). While making one of the cards, I smudged something on the inside of the card.

I tried using an artists eraser to get rid of it and it didn't do a thing so I came up with this:

I just fussy cut a portion of the DSP that had a cute flower and glued it over the smudge.

I hope I don't have to use all of these cards for quite some time.


We are almost done with harvest and the forecast doesn't sound the best so I am happy about that. Have a great week and stop by again!

I love this and need to make some sympathy cards this week too. I think I am going to CASE your card! Thanks for the inspiration.

Bruce has been busy in the field too trying to finish up haying before the rain hits.
