Sympathy with Style

So Sorry...

These are words we never really quite know how to say.
As crafters, we tend to celebrate fun and exciting and glittery moments!  So when making a sympathy card, I find myself struggling to keep it classy, yet stylish, and not be "hallmark hokey"

I hope you like this attempt I have made!

This was created with My Digital Studio using the following items:
Elegant Eggplant Cardstock, Whisper White Cardstock, Chevron Ribbon (black) Upsy Daisy Stamp Brush set (color matched with the DSP), Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Brush Set (colored Elegant Eggplant), Kaleidoscope DSP (recolored in Summer Starfruit)

You could ABSOLUTELY! recreate this card with good old fashioned paper and ink.  (you may have to change the proportions) and the original DSP is a different color, but its an easy way to test the waters with a style and then implement on paper.

I challenge you this week to create a card that would be multifaceted.  This card could just as easily say "Happy Anniversary" or "Congrats Grad" or "Way to Go Birthday Girl!"

Use MyDigitalStudio in your creative projects.  You will LOVE it.  If nothing else, use it to test different card layouts that you want to try with your limited amount of paper.  ;)  

Save a tree, do it digitally!
