Remember a sympathy card

This one created for the custodian at David's work is completely CASEd.  Even though I left SU last fall there are still several demo blogs that I visit.  One of those blogs is Stampin' Pretty by Mary Fish -- she has a very clean style of papercrafting that appeals to me tremendously.  This card is her creation, in fact I liked the card so much I copied it almost exactly - it's a wonderful masculine card.  I also attempted to line an envelope and while it appears that I have gotten the mechanics down I'm not sure that the little SU paper pad that lists this paper as So Saffron is actually it and not Apricot Appeal.

  1. I wish I could see these things in my head like other people who create them do. I just can't go there! This is beautifully created. Lifted or not, you did a great job on this and I know the recipient appreciated it.

    Very nice indeed and so nice that you took the time to make something for them.

  2. Absolutely beautiful Ben! Love these colors together, I would never have thought of this combination.
