With great sadness, I had to make a Sympathy card today for my neighbour at the lake. She lives just across the street from me, one door down. She is a cardmaker and we have made cards together in the past. They arrived at the resort just as we were leaving last time. Shortly after we left, their son passed away very suddenly.
I may not see her at all now this summer, as she and her husband are staying home to help out on the family dairy farm that her sons had taken over. I am sure their help is greatly appreciated but it must be difficult to help out while you are still grieving.
I did not have a Sympathy card kit made up, so this is another card from my bits box. Luckily, I had some of my little photo albums of diecuts with me, so armed with those, I managed to put a card together. I rifled through the handmade card kits I had brought and raided the butterfly, the flower and the black doily. The leaves and corner pieces from that photo album storage, were all diecut from snippets of various card stock, before we moved. Easier to just move the albums, rather than a zillion little pieces of card. That way they were protected in the photo sleeves and had the added bonus of being matching embellishments.
The sentiment is a rub on. It slid onto the textured cardstock like a dream. I totally recommend this brand...MSE Sentimental Rubz. No, I am not being paid or sponsored by them! lol
The 3 D flower and butterfly already had a generous amount of sparkle...here is a wee closeup of the flower...
