Sympathy card

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope your week is going well. It is not long till the weekend. We are seeing our daughter on Saturday and I am in the process of writing a list of things to ask her so I don't forget anything.

I recently used my last Sympathy card. So I decided to make another one for my stash  as sadly you never know when the need will arise.

All the dies I used for this card are designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions. I decided to use the Stitched Lattice Frames dies to create the card so I cut a mat with the largest die and I worked in from there and I made a card blank to suit. I cut the Stitched Lattice in white and added some patterned paper behind. 

I cut the With Sympathy die from mauve and purple card so I was able to create  a shadow effect. The pierced oval was cut with outer die from the Oval Just for You die set. 

I added the Exquisite Poppies to the side of the design, 

I hope I don't have to use this card for a long time. 

Enjoy the rest of the week. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

  1. A very pretty card for a sad occasion. I like to use purple for such a card, so much better than black or grey. For a friends funeral we all wore purple instead of black, it was so fitting.
    Enjoy your day
