With Sympathy

Hello everyone. It is with a heavy that I share my latest project with you. In all of my years of card making, I have not been able to bring myself to make a sympathy card. This is my first. Sadly, I had to say goodbye to another family my cousin who fought right to the end against cancer. He leaves behind a six year old son, a partner and a heartbroken family. We all know that his pain is gone but now life without him must start.

I decided to create a card on behalf of my family for my aunty and uncle and then I made a box for the card. My sister selected the colour of the papers and of course I chose the rest. Here are some close ups.


Paper: Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics

Stamps: JustRite With Sympathy and Sympathy Vintage Labels

Ink: Versafine Black Onyx and Distress Ink Vintage Photo

Dies: Spellbinders Curved Borders Two and Fancy Framed Tags One, Joy Crafts 6002/0381, Memory Box Botanical Stem

Flowers: Wild Orchid  Crafts

Other: White Lace, hemp, twine, Kaisercraft pearls, cross charm
