Hi, thanks for popping by...

Sometime in our life, unfortunately, we may need to send a sympathy card.  A friend of ours has had a bereavement and this is the card  I made to send to her.
I stamped directly onto a white 6" square card using an Adirondak Ink Pad in Slate.  The image is as shown on the card, it is a good size stamp, to-date I do not have who makes the stamp, so if you know please let me know!
I used a light and a medium green pencil to colour the leaves then cut two thin strips of card, one in black, the other in a pale green and adhered these to the side of the card.
A personal message was inserted to complete the card.

I made extra of the same card and now have these stored, although I do hope I never have to send another.  You may be asked to make a sympathy card and having a few in stock does help

I am so happy you have visited today and hope you have been inspired.  Your comments are always welcome and I do read them all

  1. June this is a beautiful card in every way, almost had me in tears. Silly question but would this be classed as a Sypathy card

  2. Hi Jane, it is classed as a sympathy card and. like you, I think the words are very moving

    It really is a quick card to make, I made 6 and stored them, hoping I never have to use them, if you know what I mean

    I'll add this one to the class list too x

  3. Good I would like that, thank you June

  4. Wished I'd seen this lovely card when my friends husband died it would have been perfect

  5. Sorry to hear about your friend's husband. The sentiment on this card speaks for itself as it's sometimes difficult finding the right words
