Sympathy Card Using Beccy's Place Mum's Blossoms Digital Stamp Freebie

Of all the cards a card maker creates, I'm sure you'll agree with me that sympathy cards are our least favorite. Conversely, they are probably our most appreciated. In times of deepest sorrow, it is comforting to know we are thought of.

Sympathy cards are tough. You want something that is aesthetically pleasing, but also serious, as is befitting the card's solemn purpose. This card for a friend hits the right notes and I was satisfied with how it turned out. I used Beccy's Place Mum's Blossoms digital stamp freebie as the main image complemented with a Dhanikans Signature2 font sentiment. This is a beautiful font, it adds an elegant touch to anything you use it on (e.g. this Christmas card). Paper is part of an outlet store TEDI Design Block paper pad. Embellishments are ribbon and some CANDi dots.

  3. Your sympathy card is beautiful Shari and I'm sure it will bring a measure of comfort to those who are bereaved. Your colouring is wonderful. I love that you've kept the tones muted to coordinate with the beautiful background paper you chose. Beautiful.
    Cheers,
    Beccy
