Condolence cards are the most difficult cards to make but I recently needed one to send to my cousin’s wife. Matthew passed away several weeks ago and he was only 48 years old. Far too young to leave us.
I love everything about the Kindness & Compassion stamp set. It’s always difficult finding the right words to say to someone who’s experiencing extreme grief and convey that you care. This set has a variety of beautiful sentiments written in a beautiful font. Plus it includes “thank you.”
I used a base of Thick Whisper White with another layer of Whisper White, embossed with the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder. The sentiment was stamped in Night of Navy and cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies. The larger Night of Navy oval underneath it was cut out using the Layering Ovals Dies.
If you’d like to make today’s card, you can find all the measurements below the Supply List.
