FMS 160- With Sympathy

I don’t know about you, but I often find it difficult to make sympathy cards when I need them… so I decided to make some extras up while I was making one that I needed this week. I was trying a new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, I always love their clean and simple look. Here’s their blog, if you want to see their awesome samples:

This week’s sketch is a very simple one, but so many possibilities:


FMS Final 160-001


Here is my interpretation of their sketch using the awesome Color Me Autumn DSP, For All Things stamp set, Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set, Blackberry Bliss and Sahara Sand ink pads, word window punch, modern label punch,  2 1/2″ circle punch, big shot, banner framelits, perfect polka dots TIEF, and Fancy Fan TIEF.











Do you have a favorite sketch you like to use? How about when you are making sympathy cards, any design you like to repeat? I would love to hear from you! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Have a great day!

  1. I agree, sympathy cards are not easy to make, but much easier to make before you actually have a need for them. This one is perfect. Love the colors, and especially how you double stamped the image in two colors. Very pretty. Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
