Simple Sympathy

Hello everyone,

Would you believe, I've four sympathy cards on my plate today. Two colleagues and a close friend all lost parents over the past two weeks. It is a terrible time of year to endure such a loss. Gratefully, this week's One Layer Wednesday challenge from Jennifer Styles is to craft a card with bare plants which I find very suitable for sympathy cards.

The card base is from Recollections. The image is Gina K Tree Silhouettes stamped in Stampin' Up Crumb Cake. The sentiment is Verve Forever In Our Hearts stamped in Early Espresso. The glitter is Stampendous Crystal Snow. The embellishments are Hero Arts Pearls.

I've done a similar card to this once before only it was an all grey affair called Birds and Trees. For a sympathy card, I loved it as much as I love this one.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.



  1. I'm really loving all these bare branches. Awesome card!

  2. Yes, this is just so appropriate for a sympathy card. It's calm, peaceful and beautiful too - the little pearls work so well on the design.

  3. This card is beautiful! I hope you never have to use it, though.

  4. Your card is lovely, but I'm sorry you had to make it.

    Great job on the challenge and thanks for playing along with OLW36.

  5. Simply beautiful, sure to bring solace!
    Together with a friend I'm starting a new Clean & Simple challenge blog called
    ”Less is More”
    I do hope you can join us. The first challenge is due on February 5th
