Sympathy Cards

A Season for Everything

I don't enjoy making sympathy cards, but death is, unfortunately, as much a part of life as birth. I've had  to make a couple for our personal use for friends and distant relatives recently, and the florist who sells my cards has asked for some. 

 This card uses a vintage image from Two for Tuesday and a digital sentiment. The embossing was done with an Anna Griffen embossing folder, and the leaves were made with 
Nellie Snellens' Embossing Leaf punch set.

This second card uses a digital image from a shop that is no longer in business and another digital sentiment.
I do love coloring flowers!


This image of violets on this card is from the same shop. The sentiment is from a SU! stamp set.
The butterfly punch is from Martha Stewart. The embossing folder and dies are from Spellbinders


This card uses a digital image of a gladiola stalk, one of my favorite flowers. Unfortunately, I have no idea where I bought this one! I wish artists or shops would include their name in the file names of the images. I often don't remember to do that when I purchase a digi.
The embossing folder is an Anna Griffen, the die is from Marianne (I cut two and used all of one and part of the second to frame the image.), and the beautiful lace is available from WOC.

I think this is my favorite!

That's it for now. I have a few more images colored for sympathy cards, but I need to take a break!

Thanks for dropping by!

  1. These are gorgeous Elaine but I have to say the last one is my favourite. The Anna Griffin embossing folder is fab and I love the lace and colours.
