Although I love to make cards, I am never happy to have to make a sympathy card. It is funny (well not funny) but I never used to send sympathy cards. I don’t know why. I just didn’t. I don’t ever remember my parents getting sympathy cards when their parents passed away so maybe it was just something they didn’t do either. Then my step father died and I received so many beautiful cards. It made a difference knowing I was going through a tough time and my friends cared enough to send (and make) me a card.
Stampin’ Up! came out with a new stamp set in the 2017/2018 Annual Catalog. It is called Sorry For Everything and it really fits everything. It covers everything from forgetting a birthday to the loss of a pet. It includes break ups, get well, retirement, moving and so much more. It is a set everyone should own.
Although it is hard to tell, this card is a fun fold card. The Designer Series Paper I used is called Eastern Palace. The flower is from Colorful Season and cut out using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies. The leaf is from a set in the 2017 Holiday Catalog called Painted Harvest and the matching Leaf Punch.
