A Trio of Sympathy Cards

Since most all of my sympathy cards sold last month at the store where my card rack is located I had to make some.  We live in an area where the average age is in the 70's so Sympathy cards are in demand.  A week ago I made 3. I'll share them all but I'll just list the products used instead of telling you how I made these.

Stamps: Sentimental Prints
Dies: Journey Circles & Blooming Details
Card Stocks: Whip Cream, Summer Days, Lemon Drop, Lemon Grass, & Limeade Splash
Ink: Black Licorice
Other: Amaze machine, Foam Squares, Easy Glide Adhesive
I also used some Crystal Stickles in the flower centers as these cards need to be easily mailed without
extra postage.

Neither photo shows the true colors of the card stock.  Top is too purpley and the bottom is too blue.
Stamps: Every Day
Dies: Mystic Vine (a host exclusive die that you can get free with a $150 order)
Ink: Lavender Fusion
Embossing Folder: Brocade Imprints  (a FREEBIE you can get with a $100 or more order)
Card Stocks: Lavender Fusion, Pretty Amethyst, and Grape Fusion
Other: Amaze machine, Foam Squares, Easy Glide Adhesive
And I used my Corner Chomper and some Lavender Stickles.

I made a similar card a couple years ago but I like the image and style of this card.  Did you take a closer look at the sky?  I used a Clear Stardust Gel Pen to make stars.  My white pen was dead and I couldn't revive it.
Stamps: Stay Wild ATS and Sentimental Prints
Ink: Black Licorice
PanPastels: Rich Sorbets collection
Dies: Journey Ovals
Card Stock: Whip Cream
Other: Amaze machine, Foam Squares, Easy Glide Adhesive

I'm sure the 4 cards I took in earlier this week will sell fast (1 card I shared using our Embroidered Rose set) so I'll be making more to keep in stock.
