Dandelion sympathy card (posted by Elaine)


As soon as I saw this dandelion stamp from the Fragrant Honeysuckle set, I thought it would make a very suitable stamp for a sympathy card. I stamped the images and sentiment in Versamark on a white card panel slightly smaller than DL size and embossed in the silver detail powder I seem to use so much!  The words are from the CB With Sympathy set which is very useful for these sad occasions. I edged with more silver embossing using a Versamark pen. I then matted onto medium grey. I wanted to keep the design deliberately simple.

Hope you enjoy  looking at all the ideas from the DT for these lovely new stamps

  5. The ethereal nature of life is reflected so well with the Dandelion that your idea of using it for a Sympathy card is a superbly tasteful one. I think the fact that you matted with grey is also fitting & looks very elegant against the silver edging.
