sending sympathy and prayers...


I made this sympathy card for the family of an employee of mine who lost his battle with cancer today. John was honest, dedicated and loved his job. We will all miss him dearly. 
  • The card base is 5" x 5". I wanted it large enough for everyone in my department to sign.
  • I wanted to keep it clean and simple. The Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder wasn't large enough so I spaced it evenly, to give a small border on the top and bottom.
  • I heat embossed the sentiment in White Embossing Powder to give it a glossy raised design.
  • Baked Brown Sugar Ruffled Ribbon added a soft touch.
