Make it Monday: Sympathy Cards

The latest Make it Monday challenge from Nichole Heady is to make a sympathy card. This challenge is a great one, since many people struggle with (or avoid altogether!) making sympathy cards. I think it is one of the "must have" card types for my stash, though.

I took the challenge as an opportunity to put my new 2010 PTI anniversary set to use as well. The Botanical Silhouettes set is so classic and timeless, and I thought the soft, sweet images and lovely font would work well for a sympathy card.


I added a little "ribbon" of Modern Basics behind the focal point panel, and some twine and a button.


Thanks for looking!

beautiful use of the set- and I agree- good to have those sympathy cards in the stash, since it's even harder to make them when you need them...
