Sympathy Card

Hello!  I hope you have all had a nice weekend!  It was a cold one here for us, but it gave me a chance to do some things around the house - like finally get my Christmas decorations up!  I also had a few craft projects I wanted to work on.

One of the projects on my to-do list was a sympathy card for my project manager at work.  She recently lost her mother, who she was very close with.  I made this card so everyone on our team could write a note to her.  Our team is very close, and we are all hurting for her during this difficult time.

I got the idea for this card by doing a Google search and looking at images for sympathy cards.  I found a card that used this same bird image and I really liked it.  I embossed the background paper, framed the sentiment and popped it up, and added crinkle ribbon that I tied into a double bow.

I thought birthday cards for men were hard, but I have to say, sympathy cards are harder!!

Thanks for stopping by to take a look!

  1. Oh wow, prayers for your manager. This is a lovely card, and I agree the bird is a great image for this type of card. I am sure she will really appreciate the words everyone has for her. (Love your new blog look too!!)
