It seems we all struggle with making Sympathy cards, I have found a simple solution! The Craft with Heart card subscription kits are a great starting point. The card kits come with pre-printed bases and a variety of die cuts and embellishments to add to your creations. An exclusive stamp set, ink pad and block are also included. Sadly, I needed a quantity of sympathy cards this week and the card kit totally saved me! A new kit was just released, here is a look at the designs included.
The pre-printed bases are great for those cards that need to be mailed, as you do not have the bulk of multiple layers. You can easily add to the card designs with other supplies. I chose my sentiment from the Every Little Thing cardmaking stamp set. This set is currently on clearance for only $7.50! Here is a look at the complete set-
I added a layered sentiment panel with the Stitched Scalloped BracketsThin Cuts. The outer layer was cut in Sapphire and the top layer in White Daisy. The sentiment was stamped in Sapphire ink. The top layer was applied with 3-D foam tape for added dimension.
