#Sympathy #cards are those which I try to have on hand for when needed. I mean, the last thing you want to do is have to sit down and concentrate on creating if you are in need of a card for a loss in your or someone else’s life.
A few years ago we had the Swallowtail stamp and it has continued to be a go-to for me for sympathy as well as note cards. It is gorgeous and just has such wow factor. A couple of months ago, I made some sympathy cards with that stamp set as well as the Falling in Love designer series paper from the Occasions 2017 catalogue. I realized yesterday I never did post my final creations. The products used will be listed below and linked to my online store for you to order and have at your door. Of course, those products not currently available will not be listed.
Card 1: Swallowtail in Sweet Sugarplum (in-color 2016-2018)
Card 2: Swallowtail in Crumb Cake
I wanted to share these with you so you can see how easily our current stamp set called Beautiful You can be used to make sympathy cards with an uplifting sentiment. Both cards are very simple, cardstock base, some layered papers, the butterfly (you can insert any stamp of flowers or other that you would see appropriate), a 1 3/4 punch for the sentiment (I used a retired scallop punch but you can use a circle or any of the layering framelits in oval or circle) and of course, the Beautiful You stamp set.
Here is the Beautiful You stamp set, it is great value for money as it is a double stamp pack, comes in two cases.
