...With Sympathy.

I realized this week that I hardly ever make sympathy cards.  It's because I am not good at expressing it, especially when it comes to someone passing away.  I've never been good at sad moments.  I tend to clam up and don't know what to say.

Which is why I SHOULD make more of these types of cards.

Using the Cardabilities DT Sketch #81, I created a calming & soft card.


I used GLITZ "Love You Madly" 6x6 paper pad.  The sentiment comes in the "Sympathy Stamp Set" by Scrap Happy Ohio.  I also used the Scrap Happy Ohio dye ink in "Hot Fudge", and 2 of their many adorable dies; "Sweet Addison Die" (doily, which seems to be sold out on their site), and "Fancy Flowers Die Set".  I used MFT dienamics felt to create the 4-layer flower, with a pearl in the center.  I also used an MFT leaf die and perfect pearls to finish off the front.




Inside I used a La-La Land Stamps corner die, a piece of felt, pattern paper and a white sheet to complete the card.

I hope I'll never have to use this card, but if I do, I hope it brings a little smile to someone whose hurting.

You can find more Scrap Happy Ohio dies, cards, inks and stamps on their website.  www.ScrapHappyOhio.com.
