Peony Sympathy Card

I don’t know about you but I have a hard time making sympathy cards.  I guess it is knowing that it is to someone who lost someone very precious to them.  I try to make my sympathy cards so that the recipient will be thankful for the care that went into the card and the feelings that the person who sent the card.

For this card I used pink and green and tried to make it feel light. I first stamped several peonies to make a paper ribbon and then I stamped a large peony for the front of the card and a smaller one for the inside which were hand cut. I used some designer paper on the front and then raised the center piece up on pop dots for some dimension.  I then added some twine and made a bow for the center piece.  The simple sentiment on the inside will allow the person giving the card plenty of room to write a private message.
