Sympathy Cards





Autumn wanted me to make a card for her friend whose grandfather passed away. The visitation is this evening so I made these cards while she was at basketball practice. Both of my girls have big hearts but Autumn wears hers on her sleeve like her Daddy. It bother her that her friend was upset and wanted to have something to tell her how sorry she is. Autie is always asking for cards, she the daughter that is really not that interested in “scrap crap”, but usually asks about 10 minutes before she needs it. So I think I am going to make her a box with different cards in it so she has them on hand when she needs them. When I will find the time to make said box, since I am going back to work tomorrow, is anyone’s guess. I was inspired by a card I saw this morning on split coast. These cards were pretty easy and fast to make. I used my much loved top notes die . I also used two different cuttle bug folders to see which one I liked best. I think I like the vines with flowers more then Swiss dots on this card. I love the CB folders because they make a simple card pop. I went ahead and made two so I would have another on hand when I needed it.

Set: CTMH Treasured Life
Paper: Groovy Guava, River Rock, Very Vanilla

This is so pretty and peaceful looking. I bet your daughter's friend will love it. I'm sorry to hear she is dealing with a loss of a family member though.
