soft sympathy

Sympathy cards are some of the hardest cards one has to make - they're not really cards I really enjoy making because there's always a sad reason why its being made. Anyway I have a little sympathy card I made this week to show you. 

Stamp Set: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Simply Soft
Ink: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Pear Pizzazz
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Pretty in Pink, Soft Suede
Ribbon: Pretty in Pink Satin
Accessories: Champagne Shimmer Paint (Mist)=

I stamped and coloured in the blossoms from the Simply Soft stamp set and then mounted on some Soft Suede and Pretty in Pink cardstock. I tied some ribbon around the card and stamped the sympathy sentiment from Teeny tiny wishes below. Finally I adhered the blossom branch to the card and finished it with a glittery spritz of champagne shimmer paint.

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. I know what you mean about making sympathy cards but this one is superb and very appropriate for the occasion. Well done!

    1. Thank you! I think I need to make some more now I have a design that works - saves some of the trouble of making one when I need one! x

  2. This is so simple and pretty! A wonderful sympathy card!
