Sympathy Card Idea

Sympathy Card

Sympathy cards are never any fun to make, given the reason you are making the card in the first place!  I finally found a stamp set I love to use that allows me to create a lot of different cards with one set, including sympathy cards!!!  Stampin’ Up is my favorite place to purchase stamps and ink pads as they have quality products, in a ton of themes!!!!  I am sure you will find what you are attracted to, from stamps to ink pads… no matter what company you end up going with!!!  

Supplies used:

Sympathy stamps
Ink pads to match paper used
Card w/envelope
Various flower die cuts
Vine w/leaves die cut
Large sun punch
Small sun and circle punch
Border punch
Papers (I used Stampin’ Up)
As I start my cards, I usually pick out more than enough stuff to create with, supply wise I mean – such as:
  1. Papers I want to work with
  2. Stamps I want to use for the project
  3. Any ink pads to match the papers 
  4. If I have anything I want to use already done, I add that
  5. Templates if I have any
  6. Punches I will use
  7. Die cuts I will use
  8. Ribbon or floss if I am using it
  9. If I am not using ink pads, then any markers, colored pencils, embossing powder I will use
  10. Bling… I using any, if so – I add it here
For this example, you can create just about any theme for this card!  Switch it to a thank you card, birthday card, generic card saying, or a thinking of you card even!!!  You can find a card example you like, get papers you have, with the supplies you have…and create your own sympathy or other style card!!!  I started doing one sheet wonders for my cards!  Check back next week for a post all about it!!!  I hope you enjoy the examples!  Have fun creating your own and make sure to share what you ended up doing!!!
