Clean and Simple - With Sympathy

Today's CAS card is one of  my favorites  from over the years. It was just so simple to create and so very elegant.

The stamp was a large wooden stamp DoCrafts brought out about 3 years ago. With Sympathy cards are difficult cards for me (I always feel I should put more on them - very inappropriate!!)  but this one was so easy to put together. Sometimes I get so caught up with the feeling that I have to color in stamped images when actually if I just walk away and come back and look at the image I discover that less really is more. That was absolutely the way with this card. I have to say it has become very much my standard Sympathy card. 15 minutes to put together and its done and dusted.

Happy crafting everyone.


  1. That stamp is lovely Cliona. Sympathy cards are always so difficult I think but this one is just right.

  4. You are right that sympathy cards can be difficult, and sometimes a few embelishments are suitable. But I think you've got this just right as the image and greeting just say what needs saying.

  5. OMG I WANT THAT STAMP... can you still get it??? FAB card hun xx

  6. I love this card Cli. So simple yet so effective. Lovely.
