Sympathy Card

Sympathy card - Front
This is my first attempt making a sympathy card. This sympathy card is dedicated to one of my Malay manager and his family whose his father was passed away on Thursday.


Card Patterns Sketch 103
This card layout is inspirational from Card Patterns Sketch 103 sketch/challenge as shown above. From the design team members card inspirations, I decided to make a one layer card. This is my another first attempt as well.


Close-up : Flower in the square and black teardrop gem on the left
Using cream cardstock as the base of the card, flower in the square from Hero Arts CL266 Mix and Match Elements are stamped on the left and right side of the card using Jumbo Java ink. In the middle of the flower in the square images, message "Feel Better Soon" from Hero Arts CL394 Message Bubbles is stamped using Jumbo Java ink as well.

Some may find it weird that message "Feel Better Soon" is used instead of "With Sympathy" and so on. But, I do not feels that message "Feel Better Soon" is meant for those who are sick only. Instead, I feels that people who someone close passed away need to recover from sadness just like sick people recover from illness. Thus, I find it message "Feel Better Soon" is more 'friendliness' compare to "With Sympathy".


Close-up : Message "Feel Better Soon" and blacks gems
The flower in the message bubble is colored using marker with light toned colors (avoiding red and pink). Black teardrop gems is attached at the bottom of the flower in the square images. While two mini black gems are attached inside the message bubble.


Sympathy card - Inside
Inside the card, a white cardstock is used to stamp message "Wishing you strength for today and hope for tomorrow" from Kaiser Craft CS924 Sympathy. Flower from Hero Arts CL266 Mix and Match Elements is stamped at the starting and ending of the message. It is then colored using marker with light toned color (avoiding red and pink).

I sympathize, I've never made a get well card either. But I like what you did :-)
