With Sympathy

Today's card is sad but necessary. I needed a quick sympathy card for a friend who has had a death in the family and decided to use the marvellous feather die that came free with last month's Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine. I'm not sure why I associate feathers with death but the two go together in my head.

I've used a black base card and computer printed the greeting onto some textured card. I die cut two feathers from the same textured card and inked the edges using a black ink pad. Due to the background I have used in the photo they seem to have taken on a slightly purple hue. The feathers are mounted onto the card using different thicknesses of foam pad.

As I said, not the happiest of cards but just a token to let my friend know I am thinking of her.

I've entered this card into the challenges at:
