It is sad to say but having a few sympathy cards in stock is a good idea. These are the cards that you need quickly, and you are perhaps not in the best frame of mind to get creative. They are tough cards to make, but I find soothing florals or leaves is a good place to start. I used the beautiful Have Courage set from Neat & Tangled and stamped a small ginkgo leaf to create a repeat pattern. I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post.

I used a Misti stamp positioner to help me keep this pattern as neat and tidy as possible and stamped the leaf in Antique Linen Distress Ink on Arches Cold Pressed watercolour card before watercolouring with Daniel Smith Green Gold, Sap Green and Undersea Green. When dry I also added a few pencil details with a Faber Castell Permanent Green Olive pencil.

I stamped a sentiment from the No Words set in clear embossing ink on Slate card, sprinkled with white embossing powder and heat set. I trimmed the sentiment and foam mounted it over the watercolour panel. In turn, I mounted the panel on a Fog card base.

To embellish, I added a simple trio of Peacock Feathers and Snowfall sequins.
