Heartfelt Sympathy

Sympathy cards are so tough...I've read it's best to make them when you don't need them, but it's hard for me to make them even when I don't need them...just saying.  I made a sympathy card with some Papertrey Ink dies and a much beloved stamp from a Reverse Confetti set(this set is one of my favorite go to sets!!).

I layered the triangles three times and cut off the part of the triangles that were extended a bit(look at the pic of the link below to see what I mean).  I filled in flower and leaves of the die cut  and adhered them to the corners of the card, after stamping and embossing the sentiment.  Here's a close up...
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  5. Really gorgeous sympathy card. I think your idea of making them to keep in our card stash is a good idea, they are so hard to make at anytime but specially after a bereavement. Thank you. xxx

  8. Such a lovely card. I agree, always make these type of cards when not needed. But sometimes when they are needed it might be a soothing effect.

  10. Sad to even make them without a present reason, isn't it? This card is simply lovely! I love the colors in the flowers and leaves.

  12. I realize I am late coming to the party, but how did you fill in the pink flowers and green leaves. I have tried several things, but nothing looks quite like this beautiful one. Thank you

    1. Oh my...I realized I never put that info in this post! So sorry! I actually die cut the floral die with pink and green card stock (twice each) and like a puzzle, placed the pieces into each white layered flaps. Hope this makes sense and helps...let me know 😊...

    2. Thank you! The only other thing is how did you get it to look shiny? or is that the lighting? It just doesn't look flat.
