Hugs Prayers Love Sympathy Card

Hello Friends,
I had a request for sympathy cards so I decided to put something together and this is the card that came together as the result.  I think it is a very simple but elegant card that you can make and send to the family who has suffered a loss of one of their members. It is also suitable for a gentleman as well ...a good all around sympathy card to make.  Here's how it's done:


  • Card Stock: Pool Party, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches.  Score and fold at 4 1/4 on the 8 inch side.
  • Liner - Misty Moonlight, 4 x 5 1/4 
  • Liner - Misty Moonlight, cut 3 3/4 x 5.  Use the long scalloped die from the Be Mine die set and on the long side, scallop each long side.
  • Liner - Whisper White, 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.  Use the long scalloped die from the Be Mine die set and on the long side, scallop.
  • Using Whisper White card stock stamp the cherry blossom image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set with Night of Navy Ink.  Use the corresponding die from the Cherry Blossoms dies and cut out the spray of blossoms. Color the blossoms and leaves using the Pool Party and Granny Apple Green Blender pens.
  • Using Misty Moonlight card stock, select and cut out the corresponding die from the Ornate Frames die set.  Also from Whisper White card stock, cut out the matching liner from the Ornate Frames die and stamp with "Hugs, Prayers, Love" in Night of Navy Ink.  Attach them together and place dimensionals on back side.
  • Take Misty Moonlight ribbon and glue a length to the back side of the scalloped liners.  Make a simple bow with the ribbon. 
  • Attach all three layered liners and attach to card base.  Attach the die cut of blossoms with dimensionals.  Attach the Ornate Frames die cut over the ribbon with dimensionals.  Attach the bow with glue dots.
Inside Card:
  • Cut Misty Moonlight Card Stock, 4 x 5 1/4 and attach to inside of the card as a liner.
  • Cut Pool Party card stock, 3 3/4 x 5.  You will be stamping on this card stock.
  • Stamp the partial image of the cherry blossoms in the lower right and upper left corners with Night Of Navy ink.  Add in upper right corner a coouple of blossoms and single leafs in Night Of Navy ink.
  • Stamp sentiment as shown from the Kindness and Compassion stamp set in Night of Navy Ink.  Place liner and stamped card stock inside and attach.  The card is done.
