It's Friends with Flair!


It's Friday, and that means Unity Friends with Flair! I'm always happy to link up, just not thrilled at the reason I had to make this card... it's another sympathy card. I wanted to get it done and in the mail right away, so... I CASEd myself. (CASE = Copy and Share Everything.) I switched up the colours and dropped a layer, but kept the same general layout. I will have to use this image for a different type of card soon, though -- otherwise, it may start to be "the sympathy card stamp" in my mind. (I pigeonhole things that way sometimes, if I'm not careful. )
Hope you're getting ready for a great weekend! And if you head over to the Unity blog... wow, there's a ton of fun new releases over there!
P.S. Almost forgot to link this to Simon Says Stamp anything goes challenge! 


Supplies: Stampin' Up very vanilla cardstock, wedgewood blue cardstock, Unity/Webster's Pages Love stamp & Bevy of Butterflies sentiment, Stormy Sky distress ink, clear embossing powder, oval nestabilities, Fiskars threading water punch Pin It Now!

Sorry you need another sympathy card. :(

Love that birdie stamp and yes, it needs some non-sympathy loving! Maybe a new baby card?

Have a fabulous weekend!

Next time you use this stamp I hope it is to welcome springtime! Lovely card and I am sure they will appreciate it.

I'm sorry you had a reason to make another sympathy card but it's beautiful. Maybe you could use it for a new baby, like someone having quintuplets since there are five eggs! LOL The image would also work for a thinking of you card. Or maybe you could selectively ink just the leaves and make it something entirely different?

Lovely card and this stamp would make a great spring card.

Mono color card with a simple sentiment to a beautiple image go so well together.

Ugg, Sympathy cards are hard to make IMO...I can't make them ahead of time, so when I make one it's because I need one and that is never easy.

Your card will bring great comfort to someone and I am sorry you needed one.

well, I guess the one bright side of sympathy cards is that CASEing yourself works so well...and this is an excellent design to reuse. That stamp really is lovely! :)

Hi Lindsey! Sad that you had to make a sympathy card. The colours are so soothing, and it's a lovely card!! Have a great day!!

Jocelyn Olson said...

Yes, it's always good to have sympathy cards on hand, but it sucks that we need to have sympathy cards on hand. Sorry to hear it!

I love the stamp in blue--it's really gorgeous! I have to tell you that I subsequently purchased the stamp after the last time you used it. I guess I loved what you did that much!! :)
