Thinking of you

I had the unfortunate need of a sympathy card recently, for one of the lovely ladies from work whose brother passed away. It’s always hard to make a card that is thoughtful and considerate and conveys everything you want to say.

I didn’t have any sympathy sentiments, but decided to use the Upsy Daisy flowers with the “Thinking of You” sentiment from the same set. I also found inspiration for the card in the Mojo Monday Sketch, although I did flip the switch around so it was on its side.

The daisies were stamped with Pacific Point ink and then again with Baja Breeze ink to create a shadow and a 3D effect. I tried to create a soft feel with the colour combo of Kraft, Baja Breeze, Whisper White & Pacific Point (it actually looks rather bright in this picture, though it was softer in real life). A trim with the Eyelet Border Punch, some Kraft Taffeta ribbon and some Half Pearls also help to soften the card.

It’s hard to know what to say or do when friends go through hard times, but I hope that a handmade card, made with love can help to let her know how much we all care.

    Your card is very beautiful Michelle. Really eye-catching colours and your shadowed daisy focal is lovely. I am sorry that it was needed for such a sad occasion.

    Hope you managed to stay cool this weekend 🙂
