With sympathy...

Hello everyone and happy Sunday to you. Today I'd like to share a card I made for a friend of mine, whose boyfriend's grandmother past away last week. We all loath to make them, but alas, they are always needed: the sympathy card.

And the inside:

I used Retro Sketch #45 to make this card. (I had it done before the challenge ended, but totally forgot to post it. Oh well.) I'm trying to use items I've had forever on my cards, and that die cut tag is it. I'm not sure who the mfg is. I hand cut the two banners, stamped one of them and used foam squares to pop that one up. Then I punched and adhered the butterflies. I still think it needed something. Maybe some twine. Too late now, the card is in the mail! Anyway, I hope they like it.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful rest of the day!

  1. Yes, these are definitely no fun to make, but much appreciated. This is really lovely. I love how you used the die cut label, and I always love butterflies for sympathy cards. :)

  2. This is lovely. I think sympathy are by far the hardest cards for me to make.


Thanks for visiting! I appreciate your comments and look forward to reading them!
