The designers at Stylin' Stampin' INKSpiration are featuring Get Well and Sympathy cards on our blog today. Next to birthday cards and thank you cards, these are probably the types of cards I send out the most. I certainly feel like it's important to let people know you care about them through difficult times. Although I usually call my stamping style "clean and simple", I feel like sympathy cards should be "special and simple". There shouldn't be a ton of fuss, but it should definitely look like you put forth the effort to create a nice, thoughtful card.
I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch for the layout and paired it with the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper. I wanted the card to be have a Black & White color scheme with just a small pop of color.
You can get the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper as your FREE item with any $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration. It's gorgeous, isn't it? There is one other Sale-a-Bration item featured on this card and that is the 3/8" Metallic Ribbon. I felt it complimented the card nicely. I used quite a few Big Shot items on this card and those will help you get to the $50 level quickly: Layered Circles Framelits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, and Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
The sentiment is from the Rose Wonder stamp set. I colored the bee image with markers and highlighted the wings with the Clear Wink of Stella. You'll find the complete list of supplies at the end of this post.
