Sparkling Roses Sympathy Cards

Good morning friends

I have 4 similar sympathy cards to share today, using a lovely sparkly floral paper. Each card is a step up from the one before it. There was a single strip leftover when I was finished the cards, so I made two bookmarks as well!

This first card is quite simple - the patterned paper is matted, and I used label dies from the Katie Label Pivot for the words. The paper is just gorgeous - it's hard to capture it in the photos.

Card number two has the same matted labels and floral panel, but the panel was wrapped with a sumptuous satin ribbon before attaching to the card.

This is the inside of the first two cards. Using the MISTI when stamping multiples is SO handy. Every stamp was straight and evenly inked. Ahhhhh.

The third card has the addition of a sheer pink ribbon and bow ...

... and the fourth one has the lovely satin ribbon tied in a pretty bow. This last one is fairly bulky, and would be best hand delivered.

Here is a close-up of the patterned paper so you can see all the glitter. It was quite heavy as well, so I needed a strong adhesive to attach it. The ECD clear double sided adhesive was perfect.

Here is a peek at the inside of the second two cards.

These will be packaged up to give as a gift to someone special, whom I know likes to have sympathy cards on hand.
