Sympathy card

I hate making sympathy cards.  I tend to make the same design over and over, and make a bunch all at once, so that when I actually need to send a sympathy card, I always have one on hand. 

I also like to use kraft cardstock for sympathy cards - so that it is not too girly, not too masculine.   By the way, can anyone give me a logical reason why Stampin' Up decided to change the name of their kraft cardstock to "crumb cake"????? Seems silly to me........

This dandelion stamp from Hero Arts has kind of become my stamp to use on sympathy cards.   I don't remember very many cards I've made with this stamp on that have not been sympathy cards.  Oh, well, I think it is an elegant and restful stamp, so it fits the occasion.  

The layout for this card is yet again from this week's CAS-ual Fridays / Clean and Simple combined challenge.


  1. Hi Michelle, I've just seen your stunnings cards on Clean & Simple, and just had to have a nose round your blog.

    I love your style and colour combos so I become a follower.

    You also seem to love SU as much as me, so I'll be seeing you soon.


  2. I hate making sympathy cards too. I've found its better to make them before you need them and this is wonderful. Glad you came to play with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  3. You did such a great job with this sketch!
    Thanks for playing at CAS-ual Fridays!


Thank you so much for your comments - they always make my day!
