Today I'm sharing a sympathy card I recently made using Inky Antics 'Fishing Favorites'.
So this image popped up when I did a masculine search in my Evernote and looked like it would work well.
After printing on Neenah 110# cardstock, I used my Copic markers for coloring, I love using plaid papers for masculine cards, and die cut the edges with the Memory Box Matinee Rectangle die.
I used a standard size A2 Kraft card base. Before adding the layers to the base, I secured them together and then did a double wrap of brown twine on the left side. At the knot I added the little fish hook charm. Then I secured this grouping to the Kraft card base to complete the card.
The Rest of the Story... The next time the salesman came to my husband's office, he told him how much the handmade card meant to him. The two were able to chat and my husband was able to share how he knew exactly what this guy was going through having lost his first wife suddenly. You just never know where one of your cards are going to end up and how it may truly help someone through a difficult time. What joy that brings to me and to you I'm sure.
Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to 'Follow' my blog and to visit my site - "Not Just Scraps' on Facebook - where you can purchase my cards.
