Masculine sympathy card

Not all cards are made for happy occasions. Sometimes we are tasked with making a particularly difficult card, in this case a sympathy card… for a man. On these occasions I feel it inappropriate to “show off”, as it were, so prefer to keep my cards really simple. I think this card did the job – just a couple of layers and some simple stamping. Of course, Lovely as a Tree is always perfect for any occasion – birthdays, masculine, feminine, Christmas, sympathy… and that’s why it’s been offered by Stampin’ Up!® for ever and ever!

The So Sorry stamp set would also be a useful addition to your collection. As well as this tasteful “So sorry” greeting, there are words to stamp inside for many occasions. 

Stamps: Lovely As a Tree, So Sorry
Cardstock: Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Very Vanilla
Ink: Gumball Green, Midnight Muse


  1. I think this will always be my favourite stamp set, it was the first of many!! Lol.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
