A couple of weeks ago there was this awful, tragic accident in Upstate New York. Seventeen people (plus the driver) were in a limo that ran a stop sign. Everyone in the car was killed along with two pedestrians. In that car were four sisters and their husbands. Can you imagine losing all four of your children and spouses at once? I can’t even think of anything worse right now. I didn’t know any of them but my heart still ached.
As much as we dislike having to send sympathy cards, it is a fact of life. I try to have some on hand. I know that sounds a little cold, but when someone dies, I don’t always feel like running to my stamp room to make a card. I would rather just grab one and do what I need to do to help the people left behind.
I made this simple sympathy card using a new stamp set that is in the Stampin’ Up!® 2018/2019 Annual Catalog called Kindness & Compassion. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and then embossed it using White Embossing Powder. The dragonflies are from the set called Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits. I cut them out of Basic Black cardstock and layered everything on top of a piece of 6″ x6″ Designer Series Paper (Subtles) in Pool Party.
Keep that family in your thoughts and prayers. They are going to need it.
It was a terrible accident. And I agree with you we need to have sympathy cards made ahead. Very nice card Susan.
The accident was so sad. I can’t even imagine! This is a lovely card, Susan, and perfect to have on hand. It’s much easier to grab a card that’s already made than to make one when you’re sad.
That accident was so awful, made worse by the fact that it was preventable 😦 My heart goes out to the families; I can’t imagine their pain. You made a beautiful card, Susan.
