Heartfelt Sympathy

I needed to make a Sympathy card that needs to be delivered today.  I started with the Unity stamp of the bird in the frame.  I've used this one a lot but this is the first for a Sympathy card.  

I stamped in black ink, clear embossed, and hand cut it out.  I pop dotted him onto a black circle.  I cut several layers for the front the card and wrapped the lace and ribbon around everything but the black cardstock base.  

For the inside I use the My Sentiments Exactly stamp.  It was one that was in a grab bag for the innies and outies (inside and outside of cards) and is really old - probably sometime in 2008 or 2009. Since this card will have a lost of signatures I covered both sides of the inside and only have the "Heartfelt Sympathy on the left side.

Thanks for stopping by.
