I needed to make sympathy cards for my son to give to a long-time friend from his high school days (and his parents), who lost his brother (and son) in an accident in late March. His friend married a Polish young lady several years ago and resides in Poland; therefore, tragically, he was unable to come home for the funeral. Our entire family sends prayers of comfort to help him and his family through this sorrowful time.
I decided to use the Stampin' Up Feels Like Frost nature scenes paper for both cards in the lavender and purple hues. I think this paper, done in off-focus almost ethereal look, lends itself well to sympathy cards. Both cards are in a similar design, one using a vellum overlay for the front and sentiment background and the other using the vellum only as a background for the sentiment. Take a peek at the finished cards and inside scripture verses.
