Check out this sympathy card, designed for the As You See It Challenge blog, featuring Something Borrowed designer series paper, Window Framelits, Soft Sky seam binding ribbon, Lost Lagoon ink, and the Bloom with Hope hostess stamp set; all to be retiring at the end of this month from Stampin’ up!
Here’s the sketch that marked the beginnings of this card:
It’s always good to have a selection of sympathy and get well soon cards on hand as they are a necessity for events that often surprise us on our path in life. Yet these unpleasant events are inevitable and require quick response to ease the hearts and bodies of those in the midst of life’s trials. It’s during these times when we need to rally along side the families and show our support and offer our well wishes. Hand-made cards not only offer a word of encouragement and love, but also offer a piece of ourselves with each layer of paper that is cut and each embellishment that is placed with care and consideration.
Even though I don’t currently have a need for this sympathy card, it too is made with a little bit of myself poured into it and is ready to bless someone with an offering of support.
