Deepest Sympathy Decoupage Card


It is with great saddness that I learn we have lost a dear friend today. He was a charming man, kind and willing to help anybody. Suffering many of life's hardships which unfortunately he experienced a plenty he battled his way through and sadly passed away from illness in hospital. His wife and family will miss him tremendously, as will his closest friends.

You will have noticed I made him a 'policeman' get well card posted on my blog not so long ago. Sadly the well wishes didn''t work and unfortunately this latest sympathy card is for his dear wife and family. We will miss you dear friend.

The decoupage card combines a handmade floral embellishment, gemstones, ribbon and sentiment. I will also personalise with his family's names in the remaining space. It is always tough to make suitable sympathy cards. I like to include a flower of some description (particularly if it's for a female) often a lily is first choice. I try to make the card as elegant and fresh as possible, with pastel colours and not too busy.

Do you have any tips for making Sympathy cards? It's also so difficult to know what to write in these difficult times.
