Altenew Painted Flowers Sympathy – by Sharon Johnson

It seems I have a never-ending need for sympathy cards.  In fact, the card I made this afternoon and am sharing here now is way overdue. But cards, even late, are always appreciated. So as much as I do try to be timely, it often doesn’t happen. In any event, I enjoyed making today’s card, even though it was for a sad event. Take a look:

I hope the recipient gets some feeling of peace from this card.

Psalm 23 surely does convey a true peace during times of trouble.

And here’s the card inside – still plenty of room for me to write something personal.

This card is a favorite size of mine – 4.75 x 6.5″ – fitting perfectly into an A6 Clear Box.

I like the Clear Boxes both for protecting dimensional cards and for presentation purposes.

Here’s what I used on this card:

    This card is beautiful enough to cheer up anyone for a while, especially for such a sad occasion. I LOVE your colors and the style. I know that I would have put the outside sentiment inside and the inside out. The way you did it gives the card so much more interest. TFS.
