Sympathy Card

Hello friends!  Today I'm sharing a card that I created using products available from My Craft Spot.  Unfortunately, the brother of a colleague recently passed away rather unexpectedly.  I made this card to offer my sympathy.


I used Fancy Frames to create the frame to highlight the beautiful sentiment from My Craft Spot's With Deepest Sympathy stamp set.  The font on this set is simply gorgeous and there are such heartfelt messages available to choose from.  (You can click on the image of the stamp set below to enlarge it for a closer view.)  These messages are perfect for projects of sympathy following the loss of a loved one - but also for projects of encouragement when others are going through troubled times.


I embossed the background of my card using my Cuttlebug and also assembled a flower using cuts from Flower Shoppe.  I did some inking with some different colours of Tim Holtz distress inks too.  To finish things off, I added three little pearls under the sentiment and some fabulous Vanilla Bean crinkle ribbon, available from My Craft Spot.

 

For the inside of my card, I cut the outline of the frame used on the front and stamped another sentiment from My Craft Spot's With Deepest Sympathy stamp set.

My sweet friend, I am so sorry this card was needed but I'm sure your heartfelt creation delivered love and comfort. It is exquisite. That fantastic stamp set makes it a wee bit easier to create this difficult cards. The sentiments are beautiful. Every part of your sweet gesture is gorgeous.. the colors, the frame, the sweet pearls, and of course the stunning flower. I'm sending up prayers for his family. I hope you have a lovely day, Kate! :o)

Hugs and blessings!
