Heartfelt Sympathy

Hey! Happy Hump Day! :D

Here's a sympathy card I made last week for a coworker of my DH's. Her father passed away recently and he wanted to be sure to give her a card to let her know he cares. I don't do sympathy cards very often. I intend to but never know the right words to say so I usually end up not doing them.

For this card I pulled out my only sympathy stamp set (Close as a Memory) from Stampin' Up! and since I was on a SU kick I also pulled out some of my fave SU papers and colors, True Thyme and Vintage Violet. This is definitely my old SU style on this card with the distressing, layers and sponging, but I enjoyed making it and doing something different than what I've been doing lately.

I hope you're having a great week!

This is a really pretty Sympathy card. I don't create this kind of card either, too difficult for me. But yesterday I made one, sad to make it, but I needed one.

God bless

Hi Rhonda,
I am usually stumped by what sentiment to put in sympathy cards, too. I have started writing down some verses similar to those in store-bought cards. Now I have a few in my computer and I use them whenever I need to convey my thoughts. I just find a font I like and print the sentiment on cardstock. I love your card and read your blog regularly.
