I needed several sympathy cards this month and I try to keep the card design simple because it is the message inside that is truly important. This card is both simple and elegant at the same time. This blossom image has become one of my favorite and the set also comes with some great sentiments too.

I apologize for not posting anything over the last couple of weeks but I offered to make some things to donate to a local benefit and my time was spent sewing. I finished sewing everything this past week and decided to a make some cards to donate as well. I'll post the cards I made for the benefit but first let me show you some of the cards I made this month for friends and family.
This card was for a friend of mine who had her birthday on May 7th. I knew I wanted to use the cupcake from the Sweet Cake set and found the background paper in my stash and that was my inspiration for the colors.
I needed another sympathy card and since it was for one of the guys I work with I wanted to keep it simple. I stamped the background using soft suede ink that was off-stamped once before stamping onto the crumb cake card stock and then I shifted the image slightly and stamped again to create a shadowed effect. To create the shadow effect for the silhouette flower image I stamped in crumb cake ink first and then I offset the image and stamped again using versa mark and embossed with white embossing powder. The effect is very subtle but effective.
