It’s always a challenge to create a sympathy card that conveys your compassionate feelings in a sad situation. I designed this sympathy card recently for my aunt who lost her husband.
Once again I turned to Stampendous’ Orchid Greetings stamp set. The fine line-art stamps of orchids and sentiments provide an elegant impression that is perfect for these types of cards.
I created a top-folding card base using grey heavy-weight cardstock from Bazill Card Shoppe. I adhered with foam tape a watercolor panel featuring one of the orchid designs which had been embossed in a greyish white. I watercolored the image with my Tim Holtz Distress Markers and a waterbrush in a variety of subdued shades.
Rather than using black ink for the sentiment, I chose a grey ink from Memento called London Fog. I scattered three grey enamel dots and rounded the corners with my Corner Chomper to finish it off.
I hope this gives you an idea for your sympathy cards. Thank you for looking!
