Hi and welcome to my post today where I will be sharing a quick and simple to create Sympathy Card. It is never easy to create a Sympathy Card and I find that if I keep the design and colour scheme clean and simple I am much happier with the outcome and the process is a lot more enjoyable too.

I have used two A6 Cream Cardbases and one A6 Kraft Cardbase to create this card. At less than 40 cents (Australian) for a Cardbase and Envelope the 50 packs make a lot of sense and the cardstock is superb for diecutting, embossing and foiling. As with all of my creations I have created all of the elements/embellishments before even attempting to assemble any part of the card.

Essentially all my card is comprised of is:

  • a Cream Cardbase
  • a Kraft rectangle that is 1/4″ small all around
  • a Cream rectangle that is 1/8″ small all around
  • a Cream rectangle I have embossed
  • a piece of twine
  • a Kraft Sweeping Botanical I have Cut, Foil & Embossed with Pale Gold
  • a With Sympathy sentiment that I have diecut from Cream and Kraft
  • and finally three gold sequins

Thank you for visiting today and have a wonderful day
