Triple Time Technique

On my Southern Sweet Stampers team FB page (it's a private group for just my demonstrator team), we do a creative challenge every week.  This week, the challenge was to make anything using the Triple Time Technique.  I needed a sympathy card, and I wanted it to be a masculine card, so I took the challenge and started creating.

I turned to the classic Lovely as a Tree stamp set as I love the oak leaf image for sympathy cards.  I'm going to take this same card and make a very similar one as a masculine card-birthday.  So I'll post that one too if you'll come back!

Triple Time Technique

I have pretty strong views on sympathy cards which I've outlined on previous posts.  As a pastor's wife, I attend a lot of funerals.  Although they are wonderful opportunities for families and friends to gather together to celebrate a loved one's life, they are also a very real reminder of the brevity of life.  The viewing we attended where this card was given was for a sweet Christian man that passed away at 84.  Even though he had lived a long and full life and his death was not unexpected, it is hard for his family and friends to say goodbye.  No matter how long we have our loved ones, it never seems to be long enough.  Such is the nature of deep relationships.  

Okay, on to supplies and my simple but elegant Triple Time Technique sympathy card!
