So Very Sorry for Everything

This was the second card that we made at club this month. :)

I'm terrible at making sympathy cards. Probably because I'm even worse at sending them. I just never know what to say. I get all anxious about it and end up never saying anything at all because I figure that no matter what I say, it will be the wrong thing. Obviously, I overthink it. Anyone with me?!?

Fortunately, this card says it all.

And in a kinda pretty way, I might add. There's that Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper again. It really is a showstopper!

Any advice for the awkward sympathizer?

Thanks in advance!!


Here's what I used to make this card! Click on any of the images to go to my online store where you can buy them!


  1. I know I have always wondered why we never make sympathy cards, as I make a send them alot....Being someone that has had alot of personal close losses in my life, I would say there is nothing awkward you can say that can make me feel worse then i already am when i am in a grieving stage, the worst think is saying nothing at all, a simple sorry card, with or without a simple sentiment stamped inside ( stampin up as had alot of good sympathy sets thru the years )means alot, its the silence from friends & family in my grief that is more hurtful . Sympathy cards let people know you are thinking of them & they are not alone <3 Beautiful card love it and enjoyed making it at class Thank you

  2. HUGS!! I am so deeply sorry that you've had to gain this wisdom through your personal losses. I'm so glad I get to know you. You are such a beautiful person, inside and out!!
