...{...sympathy cards...}...

first off...wow, two posts in one day!

on to the post now... i must say that sympathy cards are probably the hardest card to make.  it's that fine balance of trying to add a bit of cheer but keeping it more solemn as well.  recently a friend's family member passed away and i needed to make 3 sympathy cards for the family...each family member being in a completely different age group - 20's, 30's and 50's...and two for females and one a bit more masculine for a guy and his family.  i also wanted to just use the same main sentiment and just change up the inside sentiment.

all sentiments, the impression plate and cardstock are from papertrey ink.  the papers are from various 6x6 paper pads.  the mehndi stamp was stamped with chalk inks.  the tulips colored with copic and prismacolor makers.

  1. These cards are perfect! You did a wonderful job...I love them all!!! And I agree..sympathy cards can be hard.

  2. These are lovely cards, ones I think anyone would be comforted to receive, especially because they are handmade. Reminds me I should create a stash to have on hand.

  3. I always find this kind of card hard to make (not that I'm a great cardmaker anyway) but yours are fantastic!

  4. These are lovely, I'm sure their recipients will be ever so grateful.
