Mailable CAS Sympathy Card

I often need mailable cards that are's an example of a very mailable sympathy card: it will fit in a business sized envelope, is very flat, and just under the weight limit--no extra postage!

I received this paper from Our Daily Bread designs: it is SEI Michov double sided dp. Both sides are featured here. ODBD also sells metallic cardstocks. I used a copper cardstock for both the base and punched border (Fiskars).

I stamped my Our Daily Bread design's "With Heartfelt Sympathy" Bible verse: "Matthew 5:4-- Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted" with Versafine Sepia ink onto PaperTrey Ink Vintage White cardstock. I then heat embossed the verse with Stampin' Up Clear Embossing Powder. A long rectangle die from Spellbinders was used to cut the verse panel.

A thin copper cord bow was added for an extra touch.

Don't forget about Our Daily Bread designs new November release date: November 1st! There will be three fabulous new sets, a fun challenge, blog hop, and major inspiration! Be sure to check the ODBD blog!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful remainder to your week!
