Inspired By Stamping Sympathy Card

I'm here with some Design Team inspiration for Inspired by Stamping.  It is always a tough time when I have to make a sympathy card.  A dear friend from our Bible study classes passed away very suddenly.  This card is for her husband, who was also part of our Bible study class.

Inspired by Stamping, All Year Wishes, Butterfly Wings, Sympathy Card

I added a sentiment to the inside left leaving room on the right for a hand written personal note.

Inspired By Stamping, Everyday Greetings, Butterfly  Wings, Sympathy card inside,

For the front of the card I used a page from the Spring Lilacs 6x6 paper pad and stamped the butterflies from the Butterfly Wings set on it after sponging with blue and brown ink.  I mounted it behind vanilla cardstock with a diecut opening with piercing around the diecut.  Sympathy sentiment is from the All Year Wishes set.  The inside sentiment is from the Everyday Greetings set

I am adding this to the Happy Little Stampers Sketch Challenge.



  1. That is a terrible loss for your pray study class but the husband of this lady will certainly feel a bit more comforted by this gorgeous card. It is soft, sweet and loving. I love that background with your butterflies atop of it. the colored you sponged are ideal for a sympathy card. Sorry for your loss, but very glad you shared this beautiful card with us.

  2. Beautiful sympathy card Donna. So sorry to hear about your friend's passing.

  3. Hi Donna

    Best wishes.

  4. No fun needing the card, but it sure id pretty! The muted colors are perfect for a sympathy card~

  5. A beautiful and heartfelt card! Prayers to your friend's family!!!

  6. It's hard to make a sympathy card, especially when it's for someone you know. I think it's difficult to find a balance between 'not too depressive, yet not cheerful', but this design is so rightly balanced. It's beautiful.

  7. so sorry to hear this, Donna. Your sympathy card is so beautiful! Thanks so much for playing along at Happy Little Stampers xx
