Sympathy Card


Unfortunately, I had to make a sympathy card just before Christmas as my husband lost a good friend 2 days ago. I used a Wordsworth by Rubber Soul sympathy stamp on white with Versamark, and heat-embossed it with gold ep; adding some little butterflies done with a (R) SU! Sizzlet and some gold-embossed cardstock. The gold ribbon is (R) from SU! and the embossed background was done with a Sizzix damask ef. I added black mats for contrast and quickly got this one into the mail. It makes my heart heavy to have to make sympathy cards just before Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you're staying warm!! It's bitter cold here in PA today, but we haven't had any snow .......yet!!

How sad, it's bad at anytime, but Christmas makes a loss heavier to bear somehow. (I know). This is a beautiful card and will appreciated I'm sure.

I am so sorry to hear of this lost for the family and for Butch. It always seems worse this time of year. In our area we had an accident two nights ago and two 19 year old lost their lives. Anyway this will bring much comfort to his family. It is just a touch of class and grace. Stay warm.

I'm so sorry to hear of Butch's loss of his good friend. It's always hard to deal with no matter what the age. Your sympathy card is just so beautiful and peaceful Carol. I love that font on the sentiment. In my opinion you can never go wrong with butterflies for a sympathy card. Hope all is well with you and your health issues my friend! Hugs, Brenda

Very sorry for a loss so close to the holiday. This card is lovely, Carol, and will be so appreciated, I am sure. The gold butterflies and ribbon are perfectly placed, and the script on the sentiment is classic.

This is definitely a sad time of the year to lose someone. It's nice to tribute to their life with this elegant card.
