Get Carded - In Sympathy

Hello! Sympathy cards are not fun to make, but nevertheless, I'd rather make one than buy one. Here's the latest one I crafted:

Materials used:
- white card stock
- art paper scrap
- fall scene cropped from a calendar page; seemed fitting for
   the time of year
- rubber-stamped phrase on art paper scrap
- vintage button

It can sometimes be hard to express sentiments in a sympathy card, especially if you didn't know the deceased but are sending a sympathy card to support someone who had been close to that person. The phrase I used helped sum my thoughts, however:

Couldn't have said it better myself! Just the same, I hope I don't have to make a sympathy card again anytime soon. 


  1. The card was beautiful and the bread was delicious! My family all said you are a keeper and I count you as a dear friend. Thank you!

  2. You are very welcome, and thank you for the kind words! Of course, you would have painted the scene on the card, and I know you'd made painted cards for your MIL, which was very special indeed.
