With Heartfelt Sympathy

 It seems like 2021 is the year for Sympathy cards.  I am mailing these out every few days it seems!  I rarely make the same card twice, but I have found a mix of products that I love to create quick and simple cards with.  The Olive Branches Background Thin Cut mixed with a muted background paper works well! This background is so versatile, I have also used it for Birthdays, Christmas and Thank you cards!  Here is a look at the original die-

To create my card, I cut the background die in Sangria and mounted to a sheet of pattern paper from the Bloom with Grace Collection.  My sentiment was mounted onto a stitched oval die in French Vanilla with Sangria ink.  The sentiment panel was applied with 3-D foam tape for added dimension.  A few sequins from the Rose Gold Collection finish off the card.
