A Sympathy Card

At this time of the year it is a tough thing to face the loss of a loved one.  Unfortunately, one of my staff at work lost not only one, but two of her brothers last month.  Tragic anytime, but definitely overwhelming during what is supposed to be a "happy" time of the year.  I wanted to send my condolences with something a bit bright, if understated.  This Kraft, one layer card fit my expectation.

I used my Simon Says Stamp Floral Bliss stamp and my Simon Says Stamp Friendship Messages for sentiment on the outside of the card, coloring the image with colored pencils.

On the inside, a simple sentiment with plenty of room for a handwritten note.  Since I was worried about getting something wrong in the coloring and I had the stamp in the MISTI, I stamped a few of these to color and add to the stash.  Without the sentiment inside, these cards can be used for many different occasions.


  1. Beautiful card for a very sad occasion. I made a card for a friend that lost his little brother (drugs), and years later told me he still had the card.

  2. A gorgeous card and it will definitely bring comfort. Loosing a brother is tragic but two brothers in one month.......Such a tragedy.


Thank you so much for your kind words. Isn't it fun to encourage one another, even from a distance?
