The Good Life Sympathy Card

Unfortunately I have been needing too many sympathy cards lately. I hope I do not run out of inspiration since taxes and death are a fact of life. This is my latest sympathy card.

The Good Life (Cardmaking) Sympathy Card

I created this card for a woman my mother attended school with – from the first day of elementary school (they did not have Kindergarten back then) to high school graduation. Her husband of 59 years recently died. It seems like just a couple of years ago we went to their 50th Anniversary. 

I kept the focus on the lovely stream from The Good Life—Cardmaking Stamp Set. I used the card on page 8 of the September—October 2023 catalog for coloring inspiration. I added three birds to the top of the card with a colored pencil. I layered the stamped and colored White Daisy layer onto a Pine cardstock layer before attaching to the card front.

Supplies used to create the card:
I hope that this is the last sympathy card I need in 2023 and I would not mind not having any to make in 2024 as well.

Enjoy this first full week of September. I hope you had a great weekend and had an extra day to enjoy some time with family. Be sure to find someplace where it is not too hot and humid to stay safe if you are located where we have record breaking heat.
