Card Design: A Heartfelt Sympathy Card using San's Design

Hello my fine bloggy friends.  I hope that you are all well and not suffering too badly from the severe heat hitting many parts of the world.  It is time to showcase another card using one of San's wonderful images.  This time I've gone back in time and am using an image she created awhile ago. 

Today I have a sympathy card to share with you.  It was created using one of San's older heart images. I actually made the card back in May so I think it is finally time I present it.

I just love the intricacies of this heart.  I brought it into Photoshop Essentials 5 and coloured it digitally to match the tones of the DP I used on the inside of my card.   As it is a card for a sombre occasion, I wanted to keep the card clean and simple and make the heart the focal point of the piece.

Here is the inside of my card...

Your sympathy card is beautiful! I have that sentiment on a clear stamp and I use it often. Thank you for the freebie digital version - I know I will use it. Unfortunately I seem to be making a lot of sympathy cards. Thank you, Lisa!

The sentiment is very touching, Lisa, and the heart really feels right for the sentiment and a sad occasion.

Whoa - very mystical and eerie in the most probing way. Eerie in the sense that I believe you...Your cards reach into my soul with such truth telling Lisa. You have such a gift for getting a word out to your viewers...for allowing them to reach inside and pull out the depth of what looms, lurks and lies inside in the most beautiful way. I like that! Hugsssss. Samara
