I always have trouble making and buying sympathy cards. It is hard for me to decide what looks appropriate. Here is one of my first sympathy cards using my newest stamp set., Close As A Memory from Stampin Up. I used my Nestabilities to cat and emboss the ovals. The stamp was inked using Stampin Up markers - my first time to use them. Plaid paper is Creative Memories and other print is Paper Adventures. I would love more ideas for sympathy cards. I want to start sending them for our church prayer ministry.
