Just Rite Sympathy Card

Sadly, I found myself in need of a sympathy card. I never seem to have one on hand so I had to make one that would be quick to do. This JustRite stamp came in so handy for that--it's from the Thinking Of You set. I stamped it on Very Vanilla with Versafine Onyx Black ink, then I cut/embossed it with my Petite Oval die and the other llayers with my Labels Eight Nestabilities. I'm using K & Company Black and Ivory paper and Basic Black. A strip of black satin ribbon and rounded corners lend an elegant touch, I think. VERY quick and easy. Just the ticket. I need to sit down and mass produce a few of these to have on hand--it would be gorgeous in dark blue, burgundy, or dark purple, too. Hmmm :)

Thanks for dropping in today--be sure to check back tomorrow for my Stamp Simply card--Sharon has a super fun challenge for us this week!

  1. Yes, it's too bad we need these, but this is a beauty and will be a comfort!

  2. This is such an elegant card, and so gorgeous too! I know that sympathy cards are something that we hate to have the occasion to use but this would mean so much because it is so gorgeous and a personal touch that comes from the heart!

  3. Your card is beautiful. I love your designs. When I read your blog I realized that I am also out of sympathy cards and will probably need some soon. Thanks for the reminder to be prepared.

  4. Yeah, that reminds me... I guess I need one too right now. :( Beautiful card, Bar! Simple elegance!

  5. These cards are so hard to make. You did a BEAUTIFUL job striking.


Thank you for your kind comments--they make my day and I appreciate every one!
