Sympathy Card (Double Point Fold)

I needed a sympathy card and have been wanting to do this quick and easy fun fold. I added the challenge colors as an afterthought and I'm glad I did. I urge you to visit Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #305 for some paper crafting enjoyment. You could win a prize!

My fun fold is known as a Double Point fold and was not complex. There is a tutorial HERE. After cutting the cardstock and stamping the sentiments and flowers, I colored the images using Copic markers. I elected to color the images but the card would be fine left in black and white. A few pearls were added. I think it would be fun to add more embellishments but because this is a sympathy card, I kept it clean. The inside was also stamped with a floral image and a sentiment using a masking technique, then lightly colored.

I hope you'll join us at Color My Heart Color Dare #305.
