Fatherly Goodbye

Hello everyone,

Today's card was crafted for the father of one of my girlfriends who tragically passed away in a fire. She wanted a suitable card she leave with him which will hold the words of love the entire family has for him.

The printed paper is BasicGrey Granola layered on Stampin' Up Bordering Blue and a shimmery black of unknown origin. The image is Stampin' Up Just Believe stamped in Bordering Blue on Very Vanilla and layered on more shimmery black. The sentiment is Gina K Lovely Labels also stamped on Very Vanilla in Bordering Blue and layered on more Bordering Blue.

Sympathy cards are not fun to make and this is the first time I've made a card for this particular purpose. I thought it would be more unnerving than it was. I kept everything subdued but not dull. I also spent time looking for just the right saying as it needed to be something more than 'with Sympathy'.

Please come back to SPI again soon.
