Sympathy Card

Sympathy Cards seem to be the hardest cards to create and to send.  Hard to create, because they are sometimes soaked in tears of sadness.

I created a sympathy card for some dear friends - and found myself repeating, "keep it simple" over and over.

This is my "simple" sympathy card.

I didn't use any precise measurements or formula here.  I went to my scrap box and pulled out some pieces that I had used recently that seemed "sincere".  Then I used my Walk in the Garden cartridge to cut out some flowers.  I hung them from simple pegs, that I used an ordinary paper hole punch to cut out.  I sewed some embroidery thread through to tie them on and give the card another dimension.  Then I added my "Thinking of You" stamped sentiment.

A shot of the inside of the card - "with deepest sympathy" and another flower stem for color.  Super simple but loaded with sincerity.
