In Sympathy

Good morning. Unfortunately I needed a sympathy card for a church member who recently lost her husband after a long illness. I admit that I struggle with this type of card.

I stamped the flowers from The Stamp Market Fun Florals set in frosty pink, coral berry, ruby red and jet black ink and the leaves in frayed leaf and forest glades. All were cut with the matching die. I prepared the image panel by stamping the bottom in black ink using an image from the The Stamped Market Striped set and cut the cutout using a Papertrey Ink Shape Shifters die. I backed the cutout with black cardstock and added the flowers to the panel using foam tape. The sentiment came from The Cat's Pajamas Simply Said set. A few enamel dots finished it.

Products: The Stamp Market stamps and dies, The Cat's Pajamas stamps, PTI cs, Doodlebug enamel dots, Papertrey Ink die, Altenew, Memento and Simon Says ink

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  1. Don't make it a struggle, Nancy - I'd guarantee it will be so appreciated. Just knowing you were thinking of your church friend will make her feel your caring heart.
    Besides - it is a beautiful card, and should bring a smile.
