Muted Sympathy Card

Muted Sympathy Card

Sadly, I needed to make a sympathy card today. I used the subdued colors from this week’s SCS challenge (CC239) and designed the card around Gina K.’s Inspiration Mosaic image. Searching for Mellow Moss DSP, I found this sheet from the retired Recollections package, and I used it in three sections of the mosaic.

The Charming images on the Kraft card stock were white embossed. I stamped the fancy label with Sahara Sand ink on white card stock and stamped the sentiment inside with Mellow Moss ink. A knotted ribbon was added to the top left corner of the panel before I adhered it to the card.

Thanks for stopping by!
