Hello fellow Stampers! If you haven’t tried this set yet, the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack are so easy to use. Today’s card, unfortunately, is a sympathy card for a friend who just lost his wife. In general with a loss like this, send a card ASAP, then 3-4 weeks later, send another, letting them know you are there for them. Loss is difficult, no two ways around it.

Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack, Sympathy

The floral pattern is from this magical card pack and simply cut in half length-wise, mounted on a layer of Basic Black card stock then Pale Papaya card stock. These were adhered directly to the Basic White card base. The front sentiment is from the Quiet Meadow stamp set and stamped in Memento Black ink. I added just two Genial Gems and the front was done.

Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack, Sympathy – inside

For the inside I stamped the floral pattern from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set & colored it with Pale Papaya, Highland Heather & Garden Green (this one was stamped off) inks. The sentiment comes from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set and is stamped in Memento Black ink.

And that was IT! I love the simplicity, the sentiments, everything about it. Card stock cuts will be listed at the end of this post. The envelope is from the Hand-Penned Memories & More Cards & Envelopes.
