With Sympathy

Normally, when I create Sympathy cards, they are fairly neutral in colour and tone. This care is a little brighter, but perhaps it conveys a them of brighter days ahead. I created the soft flowers by using my spellbinders flower die cuts, then adding some Sunshine Yellow over the fronts, leaving the border tocreate more dimension in the middle.  The sentiment for this set is from The {Stamps} of Life  Sympathy4you set.  Leaves were made with a SU flower punch and Ribbon from SU as well. Border Punch is from Martha Stewart and I used the Beaded Oval Die from Spellbinders

Have a great week!


  1. What a great card. I especially love the softness you added to your flowers. What a great idea to add flowersoft. I think I've found a new use for the fun stuff!

  2. Hey Vicki another one for; I love how your sympathy card is not sombre and still using some bright colours it's still respectful and tasteful. X Fab
