My husband asked me last night to make a sympathy card for him. A coworker recently lost his mother and he wanted a card for all to sign and give to him to show their sorrow at his loss. So I went to my bat cave... err craft room and set to work. It is much easier to make a sympathy card when you are out of loop, I don't think that I could concentrate on putting one together in the midst of mourning. I ended up making two, thinking that he could have one on hand for any future need and I believe that I'll make up some to have as well.
The first card uses the Anchor to the Soul set for the chair, Thinking of you a hostess set for the front sentiment and the inside sentiment is from a retired set His Angels. I used Amberley Grace paper and the With Sympathy is stamped on a TAG that I trimmed the end off of.
The second card uses a retired set called His Angels for the angel and front sentiment, inside is from Thinking of You hostess set. I used iridescent medium on the wings, halo and accents of the gown to add sparkle though you can't see it in this view.
These are bigger than my normal A2 cards at 7 by 4 3/4 (I grabbed a Hallmark card and measured it) then found a tutorial online to make envelopes for any card size.
Thanks for stopping by, let me know what you think and have a safe and wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
