With Sympathy

Arrrrggghhhh!  I find taking pics of these CAS cards an absolute nightmare. So look beyond the awful photo and tell me what you really think of this card. I think it's ok-ish, but the idea was definitely better in my head...lol**


You can see that the sentiment stamp has a little curve on it, that's because  it's supposed to fit inside a banner shape. I really could do with some plain sentiment stamps so if anyone know of a nice set out there, let me know.   xxx

This looks lovely. If your sentiment stamp is a clear one, you should be able to straighten it out to stamp it. I know I can curve straight ones so it should work in reverse.
Beautiful ribbon too!
Thanks so much

This is such a beautiful card Caroline....simple and elegant for this occasion.

I have just bought a JustRite Stamps sentiment set called Happy Everything Tag Making Kit. It's quite an old one so you'll probably get it on sale. The sentiments are very small though, but very clear and heaps to choose from.

HTH

Sorry Caroline, just realized the StampRite set doesn't have a sympathy sentiment in it, especially as it's called "Happy" Everything (roll eyes) but almost every other occasion you can think of.
