I don't know about you, but sympathy cards have to be the most difficult for me to make. Obviously it's not a fun card to make, so, when I have to send one out I like to make another to replace it right away. That way I'm not trying to make one in the moment if that makes sense.
Unfortunately and unexpectedly I needed to mail one of these out so I needed to replace it. I always get stuck and run into a creative road block when it comes to sympathy cards. So I usually like to start with a sketch to get things moving.
I used the sketch from this weeks challenge at Die Cuttin Divas:
and here's my card:
The pattern papers come from a Recollections stack called Garden Florals. I used slate cardstock for the base and the mats for the pattern paper.
I used the heart from Damask Decor, button 47 sized at 3". I added some satin ribbon and a couple of Prima crystals.
Both the front sentiment and inside sentiment come from a Stampendous set called Sincere Sentiments.
I love the colors and as difficult as they are to make, I like how it turned out.
Have a great day!!
