Well Said Sympathy Card

The Well Said Bundle will help you say what you feel!

If you are finding yourself asking why it is amazing, let me share my top three reasons with you.

  1. I love the plethora of phrases
  2. I adore the framelits that allow me to die cut lots of words
  3. The font is beautiful!

Take a look, I know you are going to love the Well Said Bundle as much as I do!

Words can be hard. Let us help you say what you feel. Bundle and save! Buy these two coordinating products and save 10%.

 

Today, I want to share with you a sympathy card.

I struggle with this type of cards because they aren’t fun.

So, here is what I do…

  1. make several at one time
  2. use the same design/layout
  3. switch up the colors for masculine/feminine/neutral

That way I have them on hand when I need them and I can write a personal note and pop it in the mail.

Stampin' Up! Well Said stamp set and coordinating Well Written Framelits Dies. Sympathy card created by Dawn Thomas #CrackedPotStamper #StampinUp #SympathyCard #handmadeCards

Some of my favorite things about this card…

  • the textured background created by inking an embossing folder
  • I love the classic color combination of Balmy Blue and Very Vanilla
  • a hint of sparkle from the ribbon
  • and of course, the die cut word

What did I use to create this beauty? (scroll down for complete supply list and links)

  • Stamp Set: Well Said
  • Paper: Balmy Blue, Very Vanilla
  • Ink: Balmy Blue
  • Accessories: Tea Room Ribbon Combo (Very Vanilla)
  • Tools: Big Shot, Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF), Stitched Label Framelits, Well Written Framelits
  • Adhesive: SNAIL Adhesive, Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet
  • Technique: Embossing Folder Stamping
Cardstock Dimensions:
  • Balmy Blue: 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″ (card base) and scrap
  • Very Vanilla: (3) 5-1/4″ x 4″ and scrap
Instructions:
  1. Apply ink to TIEF, lay Very Vanilla cardstock onto inked TIEF, roll through Big Shot. Set aside to dry.
  2. Card Front: Trim inked/embossed layer to 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″, adhere to Very Vanilla panel.
  3. Die cut “sympathy” and 2 small hearts from Balmy Blue. Die cut Stitched Label from Very Vanilla.
  4. Stamp sentiment to front and inside panel with Balmy Blue ink. Thread ribbon through die cut, tie with bow around card front panel.
  5. Adhere card front to folded card base. Add die cut “sympathy” and hearts.
  6. Write a personal note and drop in the mail!
TIP:
Adhering Die Cut Words
  • Adhere Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to card stock before die cutting small words or images, this will eliminate a sticky icky glue mess.

Sympathy Card featuring Remarkable You

Sending a sympathy card does not make my list of “Top 10 Cards I Love to Make & Send” but unfortunately sympathy cards are necessary especially to the person receiving them.

Sympathy cards are a way of showing someone that they are loved and cared for during their time of loss and grieving, but it is also a good reminder to the recipient of how much their loved one was loved by others.

So….that being said, I’m sharing a simple sympathy card today using these 2 stamp sets:

  • Remarkable You stamp set
  • Flourishing Phrases stamp set.
