Sympathy Cards

Hello Crafters,

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.
