Today I'm sharing some cards that are my least favorite to make as I'm sure it is with you. I had a co-worker who's mother-in-law that passed away Monday and last night I got a call from my dad that my stepmom's second son passed away suddenly. This news broke my heart for her because she lost a son unexpectedly four months ago and I can on imagine the pain and the void she is feeling.
I always struggle when it comes to creating sympathy cards so I went to Pinterest to get inspiration. So these cards are not my own ideas and I am so appreciative of getting inspiration and ideas from other crafters.
This first card is for my co-worker. I used one of the embossing folders from Cuttlebug Paper Lace II set and the Darice embossing frames to keep it from embossing the oval portion. I used my markers to color the stems and flowers on a Hero Art stamp and stamped it in the oval. The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps "From the Inside Out" stamp set. Added a bow and a few gems.
The second card I made for my stepmom. I found the saying on Pinterest and retyped it and put it front of the card. Once again I used the "With Sympathy" stamp from the Scrappy Moms Stamps "From the Inside Out" stamp set. The fern stamp on the mat is from my stash, not sure where I got it from.
Thanks for stopping by.
