To Everything There Is A Season: Damask Sympathy Card

A friend of ours recently lost his father so I made this card to express our sympathy.

Paper Reverie Sympathy

I used a paper from the Paper Reverie line by Making Memories. Hard to see here but the damask design is glittered. The quote I used on the card is on a Hero Arts stamp that I have used before for sympathy cards:

This seemed appropriate because our friend’s dad struggled with age related memory loss and I wanted to remind him that while his dad is gone and may not have remembered some things lately, all the days they shared together are still with him.

Paper Reverie American Crafts

The upside to being a stashaholic is that you have things on hand that may not have been intended to go together but do. Like this paper and these oversized brads by American Crafts.

I kept the design pretty simple with layers and clean edges ( mostly …had to use one torn panel and a decorative adhesive scrapbook border)
