Comforting Thoughts

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. 


  1. This is so pretty. Did you make it?


    1. Thank you. I make all my cards.
  2. What a beautiful card - and that you thought of the person while making it is even more special.
  3. What a thoughtful card/idea. Do you do a lot of handmade cards? xo Diana
  4. That's beautiful. In this age of technology and social media, I think handmade cards/letters are a lost art.
  5. To receive a hand-made card when you're going through a tremendous loss would be very comforting! Beautiful card! Hope you have a nice weekend!
  6. Thank you so much for your comments and prayers! You are greatly appreciated. Kerrie♥
  7. That is a very beautiful card. sandie
  8. Due to the worst service possible of Russian post, in latest 70 years the tradition to send postcards (specially handmade cards) died almost totally.
    That is why I am amused and glad to see the tradition lives in other places!
  9. I cannot even pick out a sympathy card without crying. Making one pushes me to the point of nearly endless tears.
  10. You sound like a very special friend.
