Sympathy Card - First of Batch 2

... and I have hopes this second batch of five cards will come together fairly quickly, as I've had so long to think about them!

Today I decide to try making a sympathy card using Stampin' Up!'s Sweet Pea stitched felt available in the current Occasions mini catalog. I think it turned out pretty well. I was going for something simple and heartfelt, and I think I hit the mark. The corners and edging are done with SU!'s Scallop Trim corner and border punches. The pink panel on both the front and inside was run through my Big Shot using one of the Texturz plates from the SU! Backgrounds 1 set. Colors are Old Olive, Pretty in Pink, and Chocolate Chip; and a bit of Rose Red in the felt. The sentiment on the front is from the Warmest Regards stamp set, and the inside sentiment is from Brighter Tomorrow. I used Tombow Mono Multi glue to adhere the felt, and I love that there's a strong bond without any paper buckling.

My goal is to finish this group of cards by the end of the week, maybe even sooner, so watch for more frequent posts! :)

I dislike very much making sympathy cards. You have done a great job in creating one that is beautiful. This could be used for any number of things. Thanks for sharing.
