Handmade Sympathy Card

Here is a card I made for a special friend of mine's friend who died of Motor Neuron disease. It was rather a quick card to make. I cut the cross out and 'cuttle bugged' thin metal to decorate the cross and then used red acetate over the cross.

***********************

First of all, I am sorry for the loss of your friend's friend. Motor Neuron disease is a terrible thing.

Second of all, I am very glad your friend had you to call on to make such a beautiful and special card. It is so unique, Ronell. I love the layering you did with the cross. Did you make the tulips with a bird wing punch and a circle punch? As you know I love handmade flower ideas and this is one I had not thought of before. I also love that our paper punches are so versatile and am always looking for new ways to use them.

The acetate adds so much to the card and really brings the focus of the eye in on the cross. I think the outer border is a wonderful frame for your image too.

Thank you again for sharing your cards with us, Ronell.

Take care
Susan

Sympathy
by: Anonymous

It will be the little things
that you will remember,
the quiet moments,
the smiles, the laughter.
And although it may seem
hard right now,
it will be the memories
of these little things
that help to push
away the pain
and bring the smiles
back again.

Uplifting
by: Fiona

A beautiful card. My sister died of MND a year ago and the prevalence of such a terrible disease is frightening. I found looking at you card uplifting - very simple and an unusual colour for a sympathy card but it works very well.

Morning Susan

About the the Sympathy card. The tulips are a stamp and I cut the flowers out after stamping them. I would rather stamp the image on red and green paper than colour it in.

Have a lovely day
