Sad Card, Happy Card

To everything there is a season and that includes the need to make sympathy cards. Sadly, I’ve had to make several lately, including this one for a colleague whose mom just passed away.
Black Cream Sympathy Card
Gathered up my materials:
Sympathy Card Materials (2)
which included cream cardstock for the card, DCWV flocked damask paper, antique gold cardstock scrap and Recollections Elegance paper scrap. I was going to use my one and only “Sympathy” stamp but then saw this gladioli image at The Graphics Fairy so printed that out along with a sentiment.
Sympathy Card Close Up
Added some cream organza ribbon and plain HW store twine and dotted the centers of the main blooms with an iridescent Stickles.
On a happier note, my BFF’s baby started High School yesterday! We both have college freshmen this year so she’s got a double whammy of “My babies are growing up”. Made the new HS student a more mature but still fun card to commemorate this milestone:
Blue KandCo Card
I picked the blue paper up at Michaels ( 4 for $1 this week!) and then got home and realized that without even trying  it’s who else…KandCo! (Addison Blue Garden Swirls) Natch, I had to use KandCo scrapbook borders ( Abrianna) and a dimensonal sticker for the center from KandCo (Cottage Garden Pink). Ran a scrap through the Cuttlebug and finished with a clear sentiment sticker mounted to a scrap.

So pretty! I'm sorry you've had to make a lot of sympathy cards lately. :( I'm sure the recipients of those cards are comforted by the obvious care and love that went into them.

Karen The Graphics Fairy said...

Beautiful! So sorry about the sad occasion though. I hope your colleague is comforted by the card. You are so thoughtful to make it by hand.

Dear Lillie said...

Your cards are beautiful!

Michelle L. said...

Both are so beautiful, Carol! The sympathy card is not a typical blog topic, so I think it's very cool.

Allison @ little lovelies said...

The sympathy card really is lovely! I have such a hard time with sympathy cards - keeping them appropriate looking and not cutesy. You have beautiful work! Thanks for linking.
