Stamping with Princess – Sympathy Card

Stamping with Princess – A Sympathy Card


Though not a fun card, a very necessary one. Here is the card I made for my brother-in-law because his grandmother just passed away. I think it has the right mood for the occassion and is not too masculine nor too feminine.

I actually made two sympathy cards but thought the other was a bit too cheerful. I’ll save it for an occassion when someone is having a “Celebration of Life”.

Two sympathy cards with different moods

    Yes, I think you capture the masculin sympathy thing quite well. It is a good design for that occasion. Two thumbs up!
