Sympathy Cards.

Over the last couple of weeks I've been asked to make two sympathy cards. Sad occasions, both of them, one was for a child and one was for a great grandmother.

The first one, for a little girl, was commissioned through my madeit store. My brief was that her parents had called her their "little ladybug". I had a gorgeous little ladybug button from Purple Pumpkin that was pink and white and I wasn't comfortable using dark colours for a child so this is what I came up with.

See the little ladybug button?

The next one was for a great grandmother and I used the more traditional dark colours and a flourish from Flourish with a Bling.

I hope I might have helped you with ideas for sympathy cards, they're so hard to make.

Oh gosh, how sad about the little girl :( So sad for both. You did a wonderful job with the cards Tracie, they are both beautiful.

So sad that anyone needs sympathy cards especially for kids. Your cards are just beautiful Tracie and I am loving that you are using some FWAB goodies!
