No one ever wants to make a sympathy card but things happen and, unfortunately it becomes necessary. You wouldn’t think that sending someone a card would be a big thing when they are grieving a loved one but it is. I remember when my Dad died years ago and my friends, acquaintances and some distant family members sent me lots of cards. It was awesome and it brightened my day during this sad time.
I made this sympathy card just to have on hand. Thankfully, I haven’t had to use it yet. I used a set of dies called Cherry Blossoms that are in the Stampin’ Up!® 2020 Mini Catalog. They have a matching stamp set called Forever Blossoms (which I didn’t use on this card) and if you buy them in a Bundle you can save 10%. One of the things I love about this set of dies is that some of them emboss as well as cut. If you look closely you can see the embossing on some of the flowers and leaves. I cut the flowers out of Purple Posy, So Saffron and Highland Heather cardstock and the leaves out of Pear Pizzazz. I used the dies called Stitched Nested Labels to cut out the piece of Whisper White cardstock.
The sentiment is from the stamp set called Peaceful Moments which is also in the Mini Catalog.

Susan, this is lovely. It is peaceful and elegant and those flowers are perfect for the situation
This is beautiful, Susan! I love the colors, and it is perfect for a sympathy card. But I can also see it as anniversary or birthday. Awesome card!
These soft pastel colours remind me of Easter. Just change up the sentiment, and you’ve got a great multi-purpose card. I’m glad that you haven’t had to use it for it’s intended purpose 🙂
