I love to make cards, but one thing I find super hard to do is to make a sympathy card. I have a hard time even reaching out to someone to say how sorry I am for their loss. I get weirded out because I don’t know what to say. Unfortunately, Kayla (my step-daughter) lost her uncle the other day. He hung himself, and his sister and mom found him the next day. Truly heartbreaking. I want to send a card to Kayla’s mom, but don’t know where to start or what to say, as usual.
I decided to find inspiration in challenges to get me started. I used the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger inspiration photo and Cute Card Thursday #176: No Designer Paper.
I used Wplus9 Designs Poinsettia Patterns and Papertrey Ink Mendhi Medallions to create a pattern. It’s stamped in Dusty Concord (Ranger Distress), Enchanted Evening (PTI), Ocean Tides (PTI) and Spring Moss (PTI).
I couldn’t capture it in the photo, but the card base is impressed with the Linen impression plate because of the linen on the bed. The color is Soft Sky to match the locker in the background. A few pearls around the sentiment add that little extra touch…but I don’t know if it’s too much. Oh well, I’m sure it’s the thought that counts.
Thanks for stopping by! Sorry for the downer of a story, but these are how things go in life sometimes! Have a super start to your week!! lyss
