Sympathy cards are tough and rough to make. I had made this card a little while ago for an acquaintance whose mother had passed. I hardly know her and I wouldn’t have made one for her but something just compelled me to do it. Autopilot took over and created this card.
I find simplicity works for sympathy cards. No bling, perhaps a flower and some ribbon. I’m drawn to Webster’s Pages for paper for this occasion. They’re just beautiful and really don’t need anything else, I hesitate to cover up the detail. Actually, they’re so pretty that I find it difficult to cut up in the first place. I was originally going to make this into a regular A2 card size but changed to to 5×7 to keep as much of the paper as possible. (I used a 6×6 paper pack)
I wanted to add a resin cabochon flower in the middle of the floral die cut but well…I don’t own any! I certainly want to add a few of those to my wish list.
Another simple touch is to clear heat emboss the sentiment which finishes the card.
Thank you for dropping in today and you’ll want to pop by tomorrow for a fun and pearlescent good time!
