Another sympathy card

It's not been a great start to the new year, this is the second sympathy card I've had to make this year for someone who has lost her husband.  I used a lili of the valley stamp and coloured it in with my spectrum pencils. The blue looks a bit dark on the left hand side and I've taken some of the colour off with a rubber since photographing the card. The sentiment is from the same set as the other sympathy card I posted. I can't claim to be deeply religious but I know the recipient finds her faith a comfort and so I thought it appropriate. I used the tattered lace rectangles and pearl rectangles as they were still on the table and mounted the image on 1mm foam tape to add a little definition. I used the left over scraps of stamping card and purple card from the previous sympathy card and so I think I might take this card over to Snippets playground as I need a go on the swings to cheer me up!


  1. Oh dear not a good start to the year but a beautiful card and sentiment. I'm sure your friend will love it.

  2. I'm sure your friend will get comfort from you kind thoughts. Your card is lovely Cara. What a pretty stamp and the subtle colours you've used are just right for a sympathy card. Barbxx

  4. Such a lovely card Cara - albeit for a sad occasion. 2016 has gotten off to a really bad start hasn't it - let's hope things improve! I do love the sweet pea image, beautiful colouring too.

    Great to see you in the Playground!
