With Sympathy – It’s Always Hard to Make These

Hello friends!

I always have a heavy heart each and every time I need to make a sympathy card, but unfortunately, it is something that we crafters have to make as is all other occasions.

A colleague of mine recently lost one of her peers and remembered that his wife was a paper crafter. She figured that his wife would appreciate the thought of a handmade card and called me up to make a special card with a poem included on the inside. I felt so privileged that she remembered.

I didn’t have too much time and I think that you always want to keep these cards simple with neutral colours. The completed card size was 8.5 x 5.5 as my colleague had requested that she wanted a larger sized card and enough writing room!

Thanks for stopping by and sharing in a moment to remember the people whom have passed.

Supplies:
Stamps – (Cornish Heritage Farms)
Paper – Basic Grey, Stampin’ Up
Ink – Certainly Celery, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede (Stampin Up)
Accessories – Labels 14, Ovals (Spellbinders), doily lace punch (Martha Stewart), embossing folder (Tim Holtz/Sizzix), ribbon (Stampin’ Up)
