Sympathy Cards for a Special Lady

Hello! Lori here from ScrappinMyStressAway!   

I have such a hard time making sympathy cards.  I try to tailor the color scheme or theme to the individual.  This individual was very dear to me.  Helen was my SIL's mother.  My SIL is like a little sister to me and I just loved her mom!  I was so sad to learn that Helen's health was declining.

Helen's favorite color was orange.  She loved flowers and animals.  I made two cards, one for her husband and the other for Amie (SIL).

I just love these cards from CTMH Artiste cartridge.

I have a file in my Gypsy titled cards.artiste and I have all the cards saved with coordinating shapes.

I put two of each card (sized to 5 inches) on a page so that an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock will cut  both.

I used kraft cardstock for these cards.

I used this butterfly from Hannah Montana sized to 1.16 inches for one of the cards.

The circles came from Artiste and are sized to 3.51 inches.  I hid the scallops on two of them.

The flower shape is from Mother's Day Bouquet and sized from 1 - 1.82 inches.

I used cardstock papers to cut out the pieces.  I used my McGill stylus to round up the flower petals.

I added some crystals to the butterfly and outside of this card.  I also added a strip of orange patterned cardstock to the inside edge.

I stamped an orange scalloped circle with Sympathy from Pink By Design stamps

I adhered the scallop edge from the orange circle to the yellow circle and added the butterfly layers.

On the second card, I used washi tape to make leaves and adhered the flower on.  I added a crystal to the center of the flower.

Again, I stamped the sentiment on the inside.  I added some washi tape to the inside of this card.

Here is a close up of the flower.

I have many fond memories of laughing with Helen!  I am so glad she was in my life :)

I hope you have a wonderful day!!
