With Sympathy


TGIF! I made some cards last night, but none were 'fast cards.' So, I decided to share this sympathy card I made the other night. Guidelines stamp set can be used for just about any occasion and that's why I like it so much. You can barely see it, but I stamped a flourish in yellow ink on top of the yellow cardstock.

Do you have any plans this weekend? I have a few things I have to do, but they are all mostly errands. BLAH! I'm looking forward to next week and you'll find out why on Monday! :)

Thanks for stopping by and visiting Mac's Flickr page! He was really happy people viewed his pictures!


Card Instructions
  1. Trim lemon tart cardstock to an A2 card.
  2. Trim guidelines cardstock to 4.25" x 3.5" and stamp guidelines pattern.

  5. Trim a strip of dark chocolate cardstock and adhere to the bottom of card front.

  7. Tie ribbon into a bow and add trinket pins.
