It seems these last few weeks I have had many family and friends that have experienced a loss of someone in their lives.  I have been trying to create some sympathy cards to send out and for some reason its just not easy to do.  I created this card for my hands-on class using some of the retiring products from Stampin’ Up!


This card uses the very pretty Field Flowers stamp set and I paired it with the So Sorry stamp set – both are on the retired list.  Since the card base is so dark – Chocolate Chip – I added a Whisper White layer on the inside of the card for writing a short note.  The Gumball Green and Primrose Petals are two of the retiring In-Colors.  And the Dahlia’s are retiring too – they make a cute little flower accent.

Here are all the products I used.  The So Sorry stamp set is already sold out.  And the Banner Punch will be available in the new catalog June 2nd.
