Sympathy card

I needed to make a card for Matt's former boss because we just found out that his sister had passed away from cancer. He was with her every step of the way and I could only imagine how difficult this is for him. Sympathy cards are the hardest to make and I never know what to say in times like these.

I used the set Here For You. The sentiments that come with this set are beautiful and heartfelt and perfect for making these difficult times. I used this inspiration piece from the SCS inspiration challenge for my card-





My Card:

Supplies: Stamps-Here For You (There She Goes). Paper- kraft, very vanilla, river rock, unknown DP. Ink- sahara sand, momento tuxedo black, river rock. Accessories- Ribbon, scallop corner punch, dimensionals, horizontal slit punch, stardust gelly roll pen.

Oh Jess I am so sorry that you had to make this card but I am sure it will bring him and his family great comfort. Most espcially that you took the time to make the card by hand it really shows how much you care.
