With sympathy

A simple sympathy card using an offcut of some embossed silver matt mirror card that was run through my eBosser with the folder that came with the machine. It looks like gold here, but it is silver. The dove stamp is one that I've had for ages and it comes in handy for all sorts of cards. With the addition of the Craftime flower and the stamped sentiment, the card was completed.

  1. Oh Hazel, what a perfect card. I love the dove stamp and can see what you mean by it being useful for so many cards. Like the way the gold embossed strip sort of echoes the rounded outlines of the dove too.

    Hugs, Di xx

  2. Gorgeous card and beautiful colors Hazel.. I saw this on MIM..Loz

  3. This is a lovely sympathy card Hazel. I think that dove stamp is really versatile. It could even be used for Easter or Christmas.

  4. Yet another beautiful way to use your gold & white combo to make a beautiful Sympathy card. This one is so elegant. Your gray dove was a perfect image to use on this type of card, and I liked the EF on the gold panel with it so much. TFS.
