I try to keep sympathy cards on hand because I never know when I might need one. And I wanted to play with this technique again - putting ink on one side of an embossing folder before running it through my Big Shot. I actually inked this one several times to get full coverage (running it through the Big Shot after each inking). I rounded the corners and put a strip of ribbon around it. The punched flower is matted on a circle of cardstock and the banner is die cut and then stamped.
Yes, I'd much rather be ready with a card than the have to sit down and make one when needed. And speaking of needed--I think I need another scone.
