With Sympathy


I am frequently in need of sympathy cards and always love to have a few extra on hand. It feels very hard to create them on demand when you have to have one versus having at the ready when the time comes. I love this big sentiment sympathy die from Frantic Stampers as it let's the card message do the talking.  For sympathy cards, I also like to keep the colors fairly muted.  A stamped border of flowers was added and I stamped off quite a bit to mute the colors a bit more.

Hope this card inspires you for those times when you need to express your sorrow for the loss of a loved one.

I agree with you - it's so hard to make a sympathy card on demand. I need to make a few to add to my stash so they're available when I need them. Beautiful card - i love the curved edge and the pretty flowers.

This die does really work say it all and it helps to keep the colours muted but this little flower stamped area does look lovely x

You did a tremendous job stamping off and making your own beautiful patterned paper, Lynn! I may not be that ambitious and will instead use pp, but I definitely will be filing this wonderful design to inspire me when I need sympathy cards! Thank you!! Hugs, Darnell

Oh wow that die cut is gorgeous! Love all your off-stamping too - I thought that was patterned paper at first!

Beautiful card Lynn. Love the flowery panel in the background. The white die-cut words look great on the green.
