StampinBJ.com, Comfort & Hope, Stampin' Up!, Sympathy Cards, Tasteful Touches Dies

Sympathy cards are not the easiest cards for me to make.  I used the Comfort & Hope stamp set to create these two coordinating sympathy cards.  I didn’t want anything too feminine or masculine so I tried to create these a little neutral.  The Comfort & Hope stamp set can be found on page 88 in the Annual Catalog and was a gift to me from Stampin’ Up!

I used the Tasteful Touches Labels along with the Greenery embossing folders to add the texture.

There were so many background type elements in the Comfort & Hope stamp set that I wanted to showcase how to use them to create a background.

Comfort & Hope Sympathy Cards

You never know when you need a sympathy card, so it is best to have a few on hand.  I hope I have inspired you to have some non gender specific cards with the Comfort & Hope stamp set.
