Most crafters agree that a male themed card is very hard to create, but I believe a Sympathy card is way harder. I don't make them very often because this type of card is usually bought with a lot of thought in choosing one. This simple card I made I believe is suitable to have on hand for when you need a right now, today.
*Sketch Shape- I started with a plain white card for the base, I then cut two of the design shapes and matted the white embossed one to a slightly larger floral cut shape with cardstock from the DCWV "Pocket Blossom" stack...this seems to be my "go to" stack for floral patterns, lately, I love it.
*Sentiment - From Close to My Heart "Sincere Expressions" acrylic stamp set.
*Embossing - Darice "Large Petal" folder. Added yellow pearls  to flower centers.
*Flowers - Recollections Assorted Flower tin. Added a metal gold button.
*Corners - Is a Fiskars "Heritage" three-way  corner punch.
