Thinking of You Cards - 4 of 4

For the last card I wanted something a bit more subdued or masculine and I think I was able to achieve both with the choice of colors and design. I wanted subdued so it could be used for a sympathy card if needed or masculine so it would be more gender specific for a male receiver. 

Supplies Used:

K&Co. Paper
Stampin Up Ticket Punch (retired)

The males in the groups really liked the design and said they would like it if they received the card and all the group members thought the color choices were good if they wanted to use it as a Sympathy card and sadly they have had 3 deaths of fellow residents in the last month or and were able to use the cards. The wonderful thing about the ICF/IID population is that the handle the death of others so well because as they always tell me "they are in a better place". 

It doesn't seem like we made these cards that long ago but it was back in April when they did the cards and here it is June and they are doing birthday cards already! We got 2 made last week and they will make 2 more next week and I'll post those when they get them all done. 


  1. That is one of my favorite stamp sets. Nice job!

  2. Really like this card - very subtle! TFS!

  3. This is indeed a fabulous card Shirley! I love that you made it so it would work for either a sympathy or masculine card. Love the papers and that tree works perfectly. Sorry that they had 3 deaths, but it sounds like the residents take it better than some of us. Hugs, Brenda

  4. Great card Okie. I have always loved this stamp set.
