Striped Sympathy card C4C552

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I find making sympathy cards the hardest. I generally try to make a few ahead of time so I have one when needed, but I happened to be out, and unfortunately I needed one. This weeks challenge is to make a card using stripes so I used this challenge to help me make this card. I feel that sympathy cards should be simple, so this weeks card has no bells and whistles, no pop ups, no shakers, just a little bit of shimmer to the dragonfly wings and the words.

“the Blues” Sympathy Card

Sympathy cards are not my favourite to make, but I try to have a few in my box to have on hand when needed. To make this card I used the “Ghosting” technique (no pun intended). This technique gives a soft image (see the white flowers) and depending on the colours or effect you are looking for you can decide on whether you only want a subtle 2toned effect or if you want to add another colour (see darker blue flowers) to add more contrast.
