With Sympathy

Today I am sharing a sympathy card that my mother asked me to make for a friend of hers whose brother passed away. Her friend is an artist from China, so I wanted something organic and beautiful with an Asian theme. I decided to use these pretty retired papers from SU!'s Green Tea Designer Series Paper collection. The stamp set is Thoughts and Prayers by SU! and I colored the image with Old Olive and Bermuda Bay Stampin' Write markers and stamped the image onto Whisper White cardstock cut using the Top Note Die and my Bigshot. I finished off with some Michael's pearls from my stash as accents. The card base is Certainly Celery SU! cardstock run through the Bigshot using a floral cuttlebug embossing folder. I also decorated the inside of the card to match using Baja Breeze SU! cardstock. (Sentiments are stamped using Blue Lagoon Memento ink).

Finally as a finishing touch, I added a strip of Green Tea DSP to the back flap of the envelope.
