Sympathy cards are hard aren’t they? I love beautiful cards – but when I am making one for a friend, as a sympathy card it takes me forever. A dear friend lost her mother.. and I really wanted to make a special card for her. I spent three hours stressing over how to make this card. I finally put it all together.
I used Stampavie’s Flower Planters by Helz Cuppleditch – really a lovely image, and perfect for this card I felt.
Colored with my copics -
The base is an off white card stock, then I stacked up LOTS of layers of Classic K designer papers from K& Company. Each layer matted with another pattern, and sewed with straight and zig zag stitches. I found a satin ribbon that matched perfect so I ran it as a band across the middle.
I also did the inside, with two layers of pattern paper, sewed – and my sentiment is stamped in brown and sewed as well. And another band of ribbon.
Have a wonderful weekend-
