So here's a sympathy card. These types of cards aren't the funnest items to make. They are also not the easiest. You don't want to choose the colours, the wrong images, or too many embellishments. Fortunately, this was a commissioned sympathy card, and not one for personal. My grandmother phoned requesting one for a friend of hers (although on the message, she stated she needed a birthday card, so imagine my surprise when I called her back asking for details about the recipient and I was given the information that this wasn't to be a birthday card, but a sympathy card. Wow, how quickly that changes your mindset). So here it is, I pulled out a retired favorite. These flowers work well for somber events. I used textured cardstock because it adds to the card without being overwhelming.
