You never want to need a sympathy card but sometimes they are necessary. I used Sketch #79 from Papertake Weekly for the card design. As usual I tweaked it a bit - turned it sideways and re-oriented the sentiment.
The background music paper was embossed and then the other layers were added to the top. The image was colored with copics and matted before being popped up on the card. The sentiment was also popped up. Three pink rhinestones finish it off.
The interior was decorated a bit and a sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. One of my husband's co-workers had a death in the family. This card will be signed by several other co-workers so I needed to leave plenty of room for signatures/short messages.
