Hand made sympathy cards are always hard to make. As you are constructing them you feel the pain and loss of the recipient. But it is important to acknowledge the loss.
This card with a Victorian feel will convey your thoughts. The card is navy with a white picture frame die cut. A light blue angel print is placed inside the corners. Out of a square white lacy paper doily fashion an envelope, trim the bottom flap with a pearl button and embroidery floss. The message stamped on a little card fits inside the envelope.
Inside the card, a sentiment is stamped on white and adhered to the card.
Another loss besides death is the person going through divorce. That loss hurts as much as death. And although it may be hard, it is so important to keep in contact with that person after the obligatory casserole is delivered.
Seems like everyone is sick, some with a cold, some with the flu, some with bronchitis. So to send a little cheer, I made these two get well cards.
This is a simple card made with just layers of paper--a black diagonal print, then a green solid, then a computer generated text (got a frog in your throat?). The frog is a green rectangle with a patterned paper rectangle on top. The eyes are two while circles punched out with little black punches. The cheeks are two larger circles embellished with a red mini brad, and then tucked under the rectangles edge. The zigzag mouth is drawn on.
Everybody loves Ziggy! So this card with Ziggy under the weather is sure to bring a smile. Again easy peasy. Blue card base with a get well helpers patterned paper. Ziggy is stamped, colored, cut out and popped up on a blue rectangle which is also popped up from the patterned paper. When you have a loved one or friend who is under the weather, send them a card and bring a little sunshine to them.
