Unity Stamp Company ~ Graciellie Designs ~ My Sympathies

Hello crafty friends!
Today I have a couple of cards to share... the kind of cards that are necessary sometimes to make, but not as fun because of the reason for the card. I found myself in need of a couple of sympathy cards so I checked out my favorite sketch challenge blogs and found this one... 

from Freshly Made Sketches #389 ...perfect for a simple sympathy card! 

I pulled out the My Sympathies sentiment kit by Graciellie Designs from Unity Stamp Company and went simple with a little watercoloring and the sentiment embossed on vellum over top... subtle and soft with an offset edged layer.

Here's a close-up of the embossed sentiment.

For my second card, I went with kraft and black... I used Unity Stamp Company's Don't Give Up sentiment kit along with the same sentiment from the first card. A simple and quick card that literally took me... maybe 5 minutes.

If you ever find yourself stuck designing a card, be sure to check out the sketch challenges... Freshly Made Sketches is one of my favorites!

Thanks for checking out my blog post!
See ya next time.

Inky Hugs,
