Sympathy In Brown and Gold

Basic Grey Sympathy Card

I’d love it if I didn’t need to make a sympathy card for a long while, but unfortunately, that need arose again .

For this one, I used a Stardreams brown metallic pre-made card , and Basic Grey’s “Hello Luscious”  paper along with American Crafts Brads and cappuccino baker’s twine from The Twinery.

The paper is reversible so I used both sides along with some coordinating paper scraps. Stamped the focal on white cardstock and embossed with gold glitter embossing powder.  Matted it on a brown scrap. The stamp is by Magenta:
Magenta Friends

I used the glittered gold brads from the package to coordinate with the glittery gold embossing powder, wrapped the twine around one of the panels and slipped the stamped focal between the twine.

The card is for my brother in law who just lost a good friend. I thought the “Friends” stamp was a good fit for this.

Oh, this is beautiful, Carol - I like it because it is restrained and dignified, yet still a little quirky.
