Christian Sympathy

Good Sunday morning!  It's time for our monthly blog hop with the gals at Clear Dollar Stamps.  This month our theme is "Sentiments Only" (No images on front of card.)

I am working with the digital set "Christian Sympathy" today.  There are a lot of different sentiments, both in black and white and in color to match the 3 coordinating DPs that come with the set.  I simply resized and printed my paper and sentiment.  I did a bit of layering and added a rolled felt flower adorned with a crystal. These can be made fairly quickly, so I made about a dozen extra.

Sentiment: Clear Dollar Stamps "Christian Sympathy" Digital Set
Ink: Printer
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Enchanted Evening
Embellie: Swarovski Flatback Crystal in "Smokey Topaz"
Extras: Spellbinder's Nestabilities, MFT Rolled Flower Die-namics, The Cat's Pajamas Felt

Lori---Clearly I Stamp
Jerusha---I Love Papercrafting
Barb---Barb's Best Creations
Angela---that's me!
Lisa---Lisa's Life Lines

This even looks manly enough to give to a male which isn't always easy to do with sympathy cards.

Very nice card. I'm enjoying the "sentiment only" challege of this blog hop. The cards really focus on the words, and everyone is doing such lovely work to share.

Thank you for joining our current theme 'words only' over on the craftymess challenge blog.
What a very fitting card for the sad occasion it is designed for. The card is clean and the paper strip is lovely. The felt flower really finishes it off perfectly. The verse/sentiment is lovely.
I hope to see more entries from you in our future themes on our blog.
Hugs Lisa xxxx
