Sympathy Cards

I have unfortunately been making many sympathy cards lately.  I feel like there has been way more deaths this year in family of my friends than there has been in many years combined.  It has made me appreciate those who are still living so much more.  It is hard to be upset at a family member when realize how horrible it would be to lose them.  

I posted this card a few weeks back for Friday Friends with Flair.  When I went to send to a friend I felt like it needed something.  I added the "With Sympathy" sentiment, but I still felt like it needed  a little more.  I decided to add a little teal strip of paper under the lace.  It isn't much, but I thought it improved the card. 

 Here is the before card.

This is just a random thank you card I made in the midst of making sympathy cards.  I just found these pieces lying around so I decided to assemble them on to a card.  Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I like the changes you made to your sympathy card and your second one is very pretty, too. Thanks for stopping by my blog. The music embossing folder is from Sizzix and I think I got it at Hobby Lobby.

  2. I'm sorry you have to make so many sympathy cards. ;( You have a great perspective, though. Your cards are lovely~I do like that strip of teal.

  3. I think sympathy cards are difficult to make, but often most appreciated. These are really wonderful, your colors are so soothing.

  4. Beautiful cards. I am so sorry you have had to make so many sympathy cards. They are always hard to make. I like the changes you made. :o)
