Floral Coloring Page Sympathy Card

To create this sympathy card, I cut a page from an outlet shop find coloring book, ran that page through my printer to add the sentiment (a Simply Cards & Papercraft digi sentiment freebie) and colored just what I needed of the page to use with my ragged edge no-brand dies as the base. I don't think anyone enjoys making a sympathy card and I struggle to find the right balance between an attractive card, yet one appropriately sober as befits the occasion (e.g. this mum's blossoms sympathy card).

I'm not sure I succeeded with this one. I think I went a bit too bright with the flower coloring and tried to tone it all down with the paper choices. I did go ahead and mail it, however and the recipient did send me a message thanking me for it, so I guess it was okay. When it comes right down to it, I think the most important thing is just to let someone know you're thinking about them at times like this.

Paper is Folia Motifblock Black & White paper pad. Embellishments are sticker 'ribbon' and matt enamel dots.

  1. You're right, the most important thing is to let them know they are being thought of during a difficult time. I think your card is lovely, and I don't think the pink is too bright at all.
