CONDOLENCE - CARDS WE DON'T LIKE TO MAKE

Good morning my crafty friends

None of us like to make a condolence card and I've had a few to make recently.  I was also asked to make one by a friend

I've used this stamp quite a few times but I must move on and for future reference make something entirely different.  So for today's post here's my 'go to stamp'


I used the same colour ink pad for the inside of each card as I used on the card front.  I also partially stamped a flower head inside the card and on the envelope 


You can't really tell I've used the same colours of ink apart from the one below


I'm entering this card to:
  • Scrapping For Fun Challenges
INGREDIENTS:
  • stamp - Woodware
  • selection of ink pads
  • With Sympathy sentiment - SU
  • tulip flower - Timeless Tulips/SU
Thank you for visiting today

  1. Lovely cards - the sentiment is so apt.It is often difficult to find the right words - but this says it all.

    1. Thank you Kath. The stamp is by Woodware and I've had it for at least 10-12 years, when we had a craft shop. I've checked with Creative Expressions (where mine was ordered) and they no longer stock it. I would do a Google search and also on Amazon and eBay

      Good luck!

    2. I've found the stamp on Google and it seems to be made by Stampendous now. I think it's the same stamp. xx

  6. Hi June,
    these are really perfect designs for those cards we all hate to make.
    Love the stamps used and that verse on the front is so perfect too.
    Love all your wonderful colour choices and how your inside stamping matches.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  12. Hi June,
    your cards are so delicate! Sometimes I do like to make these cards, because I can make them personal in some situations....
