Simple Sympathy Card

Hello bloggers!  One of the hardest cards to make is a sympathy card, mostly because it is for a deeply emotional reason.  Here is one that may appeal to you when you are in that situation.  It is simple, but elegant.

 The finished dimensions are 7" x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. Not much needs to be added to your post this morning -
Tasteful, simple and elegant. A card that everyone dreads making and an occasion where less really is more. You have shown us yet again that with any of your dies we can express each and every emotion required for every occasion with a little thought and your inspiration. Thank you xxx

Good Morning Sue. What a beautiful sentimental card today Sue. Nobody likes the task of making one of these. But at some point it has to be done. You have made this one look just the part ...but at the same time very elegant and just the right amount of content. Thankyou Sue. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Hi Sue
These are the cards that no one likes to make or give really. This is such a beautifully understated card which would fit the occasion perfectly. As you say - simple but so elegant.

Hello Sue, cards I don't like making, but I think sometimes a handmade creation will mean more than a shop bought one. Your card is very lovely and elegant. Have a good day everyone. Bx

Lisbeth said...

Hello Sue. I agree that when we need to send a card for such an occasion, the most important message is that we are thinking of them and not that we are great at making cards, so the card does need to be a bit understated. This one fits the bill just right.
