Heartfelt Sympathy Card

Last week a longtime friend of our family passed away and I made this Heartfelt Sympathy Card to send to her family. Unfortunately another family friend passed away yesterday, so I have a few more cards to make. When it comes to making sympathy cards I like to make them when the need arises. I have a few on hand, but I try to make a card that reflects the person who passed. Of course, sometimes that's easier said than done.

This card is entered into the following challenges:

All supplies used on this Heartfelt Sympathy Card have been in my stash for a while and include:
  • Paper: Natural, Fresh Fig, Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock by Stampin' Up! with text patterned paper by Prima Marketing Madeline Collection (2011).
  • Stamps: Visual Artistry by Tim Holtz, With Sympathy by Hero Arts, Bitty Butterfly and sentiment stamp both retired by Stampin' Up!.
  • Inks: Fresh Fig and Crisp Cantaloupe by Stampin' Up!.
  • Other Stuff: Big Shot, retired Framed Tulips embossing folder by Stampin' Up!, Cuttlebug Flourish embossing border, oval punch, scalloped oval punch and butterfly punch all by Stampin' Up!, along with three small pearls by Recollections. 

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

  3. Absolutely beautiful sympathy card, Andrea! Love the stamps and colours used! I am just the opposite - I find it too difficult to make the card at the time it is needed as I lose all creativity. I need to make them ahead of time when not so emotional about the person's loss.

  4. You have made a wonderful job of this card for a sad occasion. Thanks for sharing with us at Stamping Sensations.

  5. This is a beautiful card for a difficult situation.
