I find that one of the hardest cards to make is a sympathy card. I don't want to put too much into it, or too little. I want it to be good enough, but not over the top. A simple, but elegant design usually works best for me. We never want to have to send this kind of card, but unfortunately, all too often, the occasion does arise.
This lovely feather from Magenta is the definition of elegant, and the sentiment is heartfelt. The feather was stamped with Versamark and embossed with Judikins Silver Detail embossing powder. The feather was colored in blue with mica watercolor. The sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx black ink. A tag was hand cut, and gems were sprinkled for a little extra touch.
