Sadly we all need to send sympathy cards now and then. Although they can be hard to make, they mean so much to those who receive them. Today’s With Sympathy Card is easy and quick to make whenever you might need one.

I used an old swoop stamp from Stampin’ Up that isn’t available anymore, but Gina K. Designs has a very similar stamp in her Tiny Textures stamp set. The flower stamp is from Feel the Joy by Unity Stamp Company. Any simple flower stamp will work.
To make the card, I inked my swoop stamp with dark blue ink and stamped it 3 times starting at the bottom of a panel of white card stock without reinking between stamping to get the monochromatic tones. Then I stamped my flower over the swoops with brown ink. I layered the stamped panel to navy card stock and attached it to a white card.
The sentiment is from the Peace, Courage & Memories stamp set by Unity Stamp Company. I stamped it with brown ink on white card stock. I die cut it with the Essential Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-namics from My Favorite Things. I layered the sentiment to a strip of navy card stock and attached it to the card.
This card layout can easily be used for any occasion by simply changing the sentiment. You can also stamp the swoops in different colors instead monochromatic tones – bright colors for birthdays, earth tones for Fall cards, or pastels for Spring cards. So many options!
