Tree of Life Sympathy Card

Tree of Life Sympathy Cricut

Another Sympathy card. I try to strike a balance recognizing the solemnity of the occasion, celebrating the life of the deceased, and honoring and comforting the living who mourn. This one is for a friend of mine who lost her brother after a long illness.

I decided to use a tree in this card, representing the Tree of Life. My Cricut “Wall Décor and More” cartridge has a great tree image so I used that to cut my image from a neutral cardstock. The cardstock is double sided so I ran another piece of it through my Cuttlebug  using a honeycomb embossing folder.

Tree of Life Sympathy

I layered a gray panel across the middle, adhered the tree, bordered the gray panel with coordinating scrapbook borders and tied a black and white polka dot ribbon around the panel before adhering the embossed panel to the card.

Tree of LIfe Sympathy CLoseup

Finished off the card with different sizes of black self adhesive rhinestones and a brass leaf charm.

Carol, this is an absolutely fantastic sympathy card. I love the idea of the tree of life and the colors are subdued enough to still be respectful of the mourning. Impressive effort on this one! Hugs,
