Sympathy card

Good Morning all, beautiful sunshine, long may it last.

So today im sharing a simple sympathy card i made for a sudden family death last week. 

Ivory pearl cardstock.  A6 size card. Cross die which i glued onto the same card and cut around and mounted on foam.  It looked lost on the card so needed some kind of frame but i still wanted it to be subtle when i remembered seeing on docrafts Miella using her dies to emboss frames into the card, one of those ideas you save at the back of your brain for one day! So if you ever read this Miella, thank you for the inspiration.   So i used a memory box cross stitch rectangle die for the frame, stamped my sentiment in blue ink, a bit softer than black.  This must be the first card ive made all in one colour, but seemed perfect for the occasion. 

Items used:  Memory box cross stitch frame border dies
Clearly besotted Sentiment stamps

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you all have a lovely week with lots of sunshine. Emma 


  1. Your card is perfect for a sad occasion, says all that can be said at such a time. It looks beautifully simple but this type of card takes a lot of thought in the making... and is never simple.
    Miella's gallery is full of inspiration, and I love how she inspired you today.

    Hugs and condolences for your loss,
