Sympathy Card


In the first hours of this Sunday the mother of our closest friend passed away. We know his mother well since our friendship is lasting over more than 23 years.

She has been a wonderful mother for 10 sons! And a wonderful many more.
His mothers' health became more and more fragile over the last few years.
I made a sympathy card and added a fragile flower.

 I made that flower from lining fabric. Cut circles with my scissors and "melted" the borders with the help of a candle. I held the edges of the fabric close to the flame . The edges are just melting and curling,  I assembled the circles with my hot glue gun and added a half pearl (which is flat on the back)
I also used shades of grey to keep a bit of a muted look. This patterned paper is from SU. 

Here is my card:

Till soon,

I am so sorry, Stella, but this is such a beautiful card filled with LOVE and it will bring some comfort to them.
So sorry for your loss, Stella. :(

This card is absolutely beautiful, and perfect, perfect, perfect for a sympathy card. I must try your trick of making your own flowers. I really like them. You chose gray, which I also find a good color for this type of occasion.

Ach nee toch... wat verdrietig voor jullie vrienden en voor jullie zelf natuurlijk ook. Wanneer je iemand zolang hebt gekend en de band zo goed is geweest, dan is het altijd moeilijk om gedag te zeggen... Je hebt een buitengewoon stijlvol en zeer elegante kaart gemaakt. Liefs en sterkte meis, dikke knuf, Ira xox
