Just Us Girls #461 - Word Week

Hello there!  It's Word Week over at Just Us Girls, and Nancy chose Sympathy.  While this isn't the type of card stampers like to create, it's one we invariably need and hate to make last minute.  I need to replenish my stash starting with this one.
 
I was at my local stamp store the other day and saw a card made this way and I just had to recreate it.  This is such a cool stamp set.  The coral background is actually two stamps that fit around the floral bouquet.  I stamped the right side with coral ink first.  Then the floral bouquet in black, and finally the other coral piece.  I die cut that piece with a stitched rectangle die and matted it on black cardstock.  Then I mounted it on fun foam before adhering it to the card base.  I added the sentiment and crystals.
 
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our new guest for October, Linda Snodgrass, on the JUGs blog.
 
Thanks for stopping by!

You've showcased this C9 set beautifully as a sympathy card. The soft colours, the lovely florals, the warm sentiment: combined, this is sure to bring comfort to the person most in need of it...

You site seems fine! Can't explain what is happening...so strange! This is gorgeous and I will be casing it for sure, as I have a new stamp that will work beautifully with this idea! Thanks!

This is the perfect sympathy card! That floral image left in the black and white paired with the coral strip (so cool that it's a stamp) is stunning. I really like that sentiment, as well.

Beautiful sympathy card, Lisa. I love that you left the flower uncolored so the coral background pops.
