I frequently have people asking if I would make them a sympathy card. I pretty much HATE doing sympathy cards. I feel a card is never quite enough to express the sorrow the giver is sharing. I think the hardest sympathy card I ever made was one where the family lost their 15 yr old son. How in the heck do you express your sorrow? Anyway, I went ahead and did something I rarely do with this card, I made multiples (three). I love this image from Delicious Doodles called A Crofters Winter. This is one of those images like her Sunset At Seas image where all you have to do is let the image fill in the whole card. All you have to do is maybe add a ribbon and a few gems. For this all I added was the ribbon, gems and then “colored” the image with some Crystal Stickles. I love my Stickles!! I then digitally included a sentiment and framing and that is that! This is all one layer (not counting the bow and gems, lol).
