Butterfly and Leaves Sympathy Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I have used the Touched My Heart Stamp Set so many times, I just love the lovely sweeping leaf images and the 3 greetings. I have used the sympathy stamp for today’s card but the design and colors would work well if you changed out for another.

With the exception of a couple of splashes of BumbleBee card and ribbon the rest of the card is very neutral, so you could change out for any card and ribbon you might have in your stash.

We all have to face the fact that there will be times we need to send a card to someone who has lost a family member or dear friend – not the type of cards we would put on top of our list but necessary all the same, I think they are some of the hardest cards to create – I guess because they are so sad but my hope is it will bring just a little comfort.

Today’s card brings together two stamp sets ~ Sheltering Tree and Kindness and Compassion which has 8 different sayings in a lovely script.

Sympathy cards are the one type of card that we would really not have to make but they are probably the ones that bring the most comfort to the recipient ~ they know someone is thinking of them at a difficult time in their life.
