Heartfelt Sympathy Card

Even though we often need them, creating a heartfelt sympathy card can be very difficult.  It does not matter whether it is for a loved one or a casual friend; they become a necessary part of our card making repertoire.

Heartfelt Sympathy Card

Wanting to design a card that was not only easy to replicate, but timeless, and thought-provoking, the Love of Leaves bundle, came to mind. With minimal stamping and the simplicity of a single leaf, this card ultimately expresses heartfelt sympathy.

Heartfelt Sympathy Card

In addition to the simple leaf image, I added layers of Gold Foil, Whisper White cardstock, and Gold Embossing Powder.

I am hopeful the recipient will appreciate the calmness this card portrays and the thoughts of nature.  When the time comes, and you require a sympathy card, I hope this will come to mind, and you too will create one.
