Is a sympathy card supposed to comfort? Or is it supposed to be making you sad?

Maybe it depends on the person you send it to. And maybe it depends on who they lost.

Ann hasn’t really stamped for two weeks! The Stampin’ Up! Greek Isles Cruise was the longest they’ve been gone anywhere. It’s the longest I”ve stayed in a doggy spa. It’s the longest she’s gone without stamping for probably 20 years.

Here’s the Sympathy Card Idea We Designed

Sympathy Card Idea

Of course, it could be used for another type of card too:

  • Card of encouragement idea
  • Thinking of you card idea
  • Get Well card idea

We’ve been waiting to use this Inspiring Iris stamp set since it came just before Ann left.

I don’t think she thought that she was going to make a sympathy card out of it,. One of her friends’ mom passed away and it’s just where the creativity led us.

We’ve shared about 85 Sympathy Card ideas that you can see here.

I don’t think we’d ever used the Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim yet either.

So many options! So little time!

And here’s what we used to make our sympathy card.

This card is proof that you don’t have to wait until they get the Purple Posy Classic Ink fixed to get the paper. It will coordinate with other things while you’re waiting.

And believe me – they’re working on getting it right.

Do you think that it’s got too much purple and bling for a sympathy card idea?
