A Couple of Simple Sympathy Cards

Today I am actually sharing two sympathy cards I made back in June!  Wow.  It's a little bit of a nice surprise when I find cards that I took pictures of and never got around to putting them on my blog!  These were made for two friends at church.

Here are the details as I remember them.

Size:  A2
Card stock:  American Crafts
Orange Flower:  Prima (I think)
Dove:  Jolee's
Rickrack:  Just the Edge by Bazzill
I punched out the label shapes and glued them on the top of the card and then cut the edges that were sticking off.  I then added the punched sentiment on pop up dots.  I saw this idea on Pinterest months ago and loved it.
Pearls:  Unknown

Size:  A2
Card stock:  American Crafts
Butterflies:  Martha Stewart punch
Sentiment was computer generated and punched with a Stampin' Up punch 
I also used a Cuttlebug folder for embossing the background.
Pearls:  Unknown

I know lots of people say that sympathy cards are difficult, so I hope you are inspired.  Thanks for commenting.

Beautiful cards. When I saw the first one I fell in love with it. Then I saw the second one and loved it even more. Both of them are very elegant.
