Perfectly Clean and Simple October Challenge


It's time for another Perfectly CAS monthly challenge where the theme for October is Sympathy.

Remember, the goal is to use only 1/3 of the card front as your design space.
Trust me, it's not always as easy as it sounds.  :-)

I find sympathy cards extremely difficult to make at the time of loss, 
preferring instead to create them ahead of time.  
It's always wonderful to have a stash of unneeded sympathy cards.

I also like to keep my sympathy cards very CAS so 
this is the perfect challenge blog for the prompt.  

I began by creating my own stencil using a heart die and a piece of transparency film.  I first ink blended the lilac heart followed by the two overlapping hearts.  I then went back over the center heart to blend out the color overlap just a bit.  Once dry I stamped the sentiment in a crisp black pigment ink, popped it up onto a pink card base using fun foam and then finished it off with a trio of pearls.  

I invite you to visit our blog for more CAS inspiration and hope to see your card in our gallery!

  1. I agree, it's good to have a few sympathy cards on hand for when they're needed. I also find CAS designs work best for them, so this is perfect.

  2. I totally agree with you that it's good to create sympathy cards in advance. Hearts are a symbol of love and support, so they are perfect for comforting someone in a loss. A great inspiration card for our challenge.
