Another Sympathy Card

     On my blog last Thursday, I shared with you a sympathy card I had to make for family friends who lost their 'special needs' daughter at age 19.  This is a second card for the same family at the request of my own daughter who has been a close friend of theirs for 25 years.  I chose image, sentiment, and digital dp from MHK Designs and am going to use this as my Designer's Inspiration card this month.


I based this on the sketch at Feeling Sketchy
turned 1/4 turn for horizontal design.


     Sympathy cards are never easy to make but these frames from the new "I've Been Framed" set give lots of options for simple but elegant cards.  I chose the "Tree Frame" from the set.  The background is dp from the "French Country" set and the sentiment came from the "Beginnings and Endings" set.

     I die cut the sentiment, backed it with blue CS, cut it again, and added it to the inside of the frame with dimensional dots.  The two flowers were in my stash and have just a touch of glitter on them.

Beautiful card for your daughter to send. I've always said sympathy cards are always hard to make. Very sad about your friend's daughter. I'm at the beach still but trying to pop in every once in a while. My pups are both in good hands.
