It’s a glorious morning! I hope recent days have been kind to your soul. Today I have a new card – granted, not an occasion I like to trumpet, but I do like being well prepared. This month JustRite Papercraft introduced a nice Sympathy set (Sympathy Handwritten Sentiments) that I thought was very reserved and could also be used when someone is going through a difficult time. Oh, and a sale going on that I’ll get to in a minute.
For the 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2 card I used Spellbinders Shady Allure and the matching die template that cuts an aperture in the center – Spellbinders Labels Forty Three. I added a belly band using Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders One. This one I scuffed up a little bit because I wanted to show off the beauty of the embossing. I kept the embellishments to a minimum using a jeweled button and some fabulous cupchain by A Gilded Life, tucking in the top and bottom of the frame.

It’s so beautiful. I am in need of some Prayer Warriors. My Adrenal Glands are failing.
I have been an avid fan of your heart since I first saw your work. In fact, I consider you my Role model of Christ-like Love. I just wanted to Thank you.
May God bless you and shine His Face upon you and give you favor where ever you go.
Take care, and keep up the awesome cards!
A beautiful card – subtle, but not sombre. And a fabulous bow.

Very nice card, Becca. Prayers to Karen.
Absolutely LOVELY Becca! I LOOOOVE how you’ve distressed the embossing for an aged look! QUITE LOVELY in EVERY ASPECT!!! ;)
I just love your Bow!
I find that I need a stash of these cards …when the time comes ……..I feel so sad that I don’t always have the right sentiment, or feeling to make the card !
Thank you for the inspiration Becca
Hi Becca, A stunning card, I love everything about it, especially the new sentiments. Not a type of card we like to make, but this is stunning.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
So beautiful …..love your work….Karen uplifting you in prayer…
Love, love, love the card!!! Wish the brand and name of printed paper in the background of the label die cut was mentioned.
Oh my another gorgeous creation here Becca, and as always just such beautiful work even for such a sad occasion.
The dies and stamp have made a lovely refined and elegant card for a sad occasion. It’s beautiful.
This is so beautiful and elegant. Love the color kinda somber for the occasion. As always the bow is magnificant.
Karen, lifting up prayers for your darling!
This is stunning and so meaningful at present as I have just lost my Mother-in-Law. Love the colour you have chosen and the embossing folder. So beautiful.
Is the Justrite sale only in the USA or are we able to purchase them in the UK? I don’t mean buy from USA I mean are they available in the UK!!! Sorry if I am not making sense lol!

Becca, That is a beautiful card to use for sympathy. IT i one I will have to think about getting. I only have one stamp that I use for that type of card.
Love your cards.
Such an elegant card, love the color!
This is right on the button for such an occasion. Subdued but with a hint of going on. Very clever of you as always!
Good morning Becca, such an elegant card for a sad occasion.
Everything is spot on. Have a good one!!!

Lifting you up in prayer Karen.
This will sound silly but I had never thought of making cards of this nature in advance. It’s a good idea and I will have to try that. Thank you for another beautiful card, Becca! Your work is so beautiful and your bows are stunning! :)
Very nice card!
Becca, your cards are always so beautiful and amazing! You are so blessed with talent. Do you happen to know when the Spellbinders Platinum Die Cutting Machine is due to be available by any chance? What about a price point? I am very much looking forward to the new machine, as well as your future posts’.
Have a blessed and magical day! Cheers!
Gorgeous!!!!! I love the color and simplicity (but still very elegant). This could be sent to both female or male recipients. Very beautiful.
Hi Becca, That is a beautiful card, it is such a nice colour, I love all the layering, Cheers Anna.
Oh my this is just Lovely, I keep thinking I should have some done ahead of time but am always scrambling when someone passes, such a lovely design and great use of the dies!
Hi Becca. What a beautiful card. I must have a look at these Sympathy Handwritten Sentiments as I love the sentiment.
I do hope that you have no need to use this card for a long time, it’s a good idea to have some made up ready to go though isn’t it! Take care x
Stunning card today, I love it all.
It’s a never ending “feast” of creativity. I love them all. Absolutely beautiful!
Praying for Karen. Thank you as always for sharing.
