Cards We Hate To Make

Welcome to the Studio!

Yes, there are cards we hate to make sometimes...Sympathy cards.  They always signify such a sad time and even more so when the one who has passed was young and still have so much living ahead of them.  But these cards must be done.  I prefer to keep all my sympathy cards clean and simple and without much bling or brightness.  I found a sketch on Retro Sketches that had a nice, clean design.  I used some dark, vintage papers and ended up with a lovely card, or at least as lovely as a sympathy card can be.

I did a bit of paper piercing along the scalloped border.  I thought the card needed a little something extra and that did the trick.

And for the inside...
