Today I want to show you how to make a handmade sympathy card that’s beautiful and doesn’t take hours to create! Check it out in my short video.
Sympathy cards are some of the most requested designs my crafting community want to see. Unfortunately there is always a need to send a card of condolence, yet we struggle sometimes with how to make one.
This is a simple one that conveys your heartfelt message and would be appropriate for males and females alike.
The soft colour around the edges of the card is added with our new blending brushes. It adds visual interest and depth to the card.

Now let’s take a closer look at today’s card.
While I always enjoy dry embossed images whenever they appear on a card, I especially like how the ink brings the dandelions more into focus here.
Isn’t that a lovely greeting? And the even more lovely part is the stamp set is free during Sale-a-Bration until February 28th with a qualifying $60 order!
