Sympathy Trees

It is always hard when someone passes away, but it seems worse when it is sudden.  I made this card for a co-worker who suddenly lost a close friend.  He was around my age which is just too young.
I wanted this card to be masculine and somber.  I don't have many stamp sets that are masculine, but I like how versatile this set Lovely As A Tree set is.  It can really be used for any occasion.
The sentiment is from Close As A Memory, which is retiring at the end of June.  If you would like it before it disappears forever, please click here to order it directly from me.  If you don't like ordering online, please leave me a comment and I will get back to you asap.
The colors used in this card are Close to Cocoa and Sage Shadow.  Unfortunately, Sage Shadow is retiring as well and I believe that they are already sold out.  I have sponged the edges of the Whisper White CS as well to give it a softer effect.

  1. Very elegant. I struggle with sympathy cards, but I think this one is perfect.
