Don't like making them, but we do need them...

 ...Sympathy cards, that is. 

Hello crafty friends, and welcome.

I have a pretty (I think), card to share:

Here's the inside:

Tried out a new to me stencil, the Christmas Wreaths 
by Sanna Lippert Designs, using a gray and a red ink.
Over the berries, I used two different shades of red glitter glue.
(of course, it's impossible to see with my crack photography skillz.) 

 I die cut three times, stacked and glued the With Sympathy
word die together and adhered on the inside of the wreath.
Pretty simple design, but I love how it looks.
