BSS IDEA - Sympathy Card

Hello, and welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea.

This week, I am featuring a sympathy card.  Probably one of the hardest
cards to make, yet we all need them at one time or another.

I also wanted to show you that there is more than one way to use a stamp.

This is the stamp I used.

And this is the gate-fold sympathy card I made with it.

The inside

Stamp - Those we Love (CRR265) Stampendous
Inside Sentiment - Hero Arts (1997)
Die (inside) Spellbinders
Designer Paper inside -Graphic 45
Colored with Copic Markers

These beautiful stamps are made to cover the front of a card.
I wanted to make a Gate-Fold card, so I cut the stamp into two
separate pieces along the left side of the words, after coloring it up.
Matted the two pieces and attached.
Small hearts are from a punch and placed on the side of the opening
alternating sides.adhering only one side of the heart, so card
is able to open freely.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  Until later.

Sue, this is lovely card and the colors are so nice. I love those little hearts closing the two sides. The sentiment is very thoughtful and caring. If we have to send they types of cards at least one this nice would certainly lift someone's spirits. Wonderful job.
