Sweet little critters, a simple inlay frame, and sentiments make for a perfect sympathy card. Sympathy cards don't always have to be flowers (which I love and use often). I challenged myself to use critter images from the Mama Elephant Dandelion Wishes Stamp Set for a sympathy card. The soft muted colors and simple design make this a great option for a sympathy/prayers card.

Watch the creation of these grateful for you cards from start to finish below or click HERE to watch in HD:
The background of the card was created by stamping the long border Brush Strokes images on smooth white cardstock with Mama Elephant Moonlight Pigment Ink. The "prayers" sentiment from the Blessed Stamp Set was stamped with Mama Elephant Smoke Ink and the rest of the greeting was stamped above the scripty word with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
The background was die cut with the thin Dotted Detail Frame, keeping the outer frame and inside panel and discarding the thin frame. The Dotted Detail frame was die cut again from silver metallic cardstock. The three pieces were then adhered onto a white top fold card base to create the inlay background. I love this technique and it's a go-to for creating an eye-catching border on a simple design.
The images were adhered to the scene as shown and white detailing was added with an opaque pen to finish the design.
