Sympathy Card

Making a sympathy card is a delicate matter.  You don't want it to be too over the top cheerful, but you do want it to be lovely and warm and expressive.

So a dear friend of mine lost her husband a few days ago and I wanted to make her a very special card that would be flat enough to send through the mail, as she lives about 3 1/2 hours from where I am.

This card starts with white cardstock; the next blue layer is a diecut background that has a series of slits on the right hand side so that you can weave a ribbon in and out of it.  The center rectangle has a bottom layer of white cardstock, a layer of embossed vellum, and a final layer of a die cut lattice.  On top of that is a leaf flourish and blue and white flowers which were cut out.  At the bottom is the sentiment printed on a piece of white cardstock run through a ribbon die. It is finished off with a sweet blue butterfly.

Here is the card:

Theses are the tools used for making the card:

  • Spellbinders A-2 Fancy Ribbon Threader, Fancy Lattice, Ribbon Banners
  • Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish
  • Memory Box Pippi Butterfly
I am entering this card into the Flutterby Wednesdays challenge.

As always, God's highest and best to you today and every day.
