Sympathy Cards

I hate needing Sympathy cards. But this weekend I found myself needing two of them. Both are for friends who have lost a parent. I don't know how that feels, but can only imagine the grief.
The first thought I had when I received my Rubber Stamping Fun review set was that it would make a sweet and delicate sympathy card. And I think it did!
Details, details- A complete CASE from the new catty. I used Mellow Moss, River Rock, Confetti White and Bordering Blue CS, Mellow Moss ink, Bordering Blue and Mellow Moss markers, Canvas Background, Air Art tool, Pewter MM brads and this cool Ivory Burlap ribbon from Berwick Offray. It is actually wider, but I cut it in half.
I hope your week is off to a great start!!!

Sympathy cards are the hardest for me to make, but you did a great job with these.

I know what you mean! I HATED creating sympathy cards for the parents of those 19 Soldiers we lost in Iraq! However, the response I got from the families was worth it! They were touched by the fact that I made each card personnaly and put tears into each project!
Those are beautiful cards!!!

Beautiful cards. The subdued colors and linen background are all perfect touches. They will be especially appreciated knowing you made them by hand.

Nice calming colors for a sympathy card. Having lost both parents and a brother, one of the best pieces of healing was through the love, support, and thoughtfulness of those who sent cards. I know they are hard to make and you sometimes don't know what to say, but they mean so much. Thanks for sharing; I'm sure your friends really appreciated these cards.
