Last week, I found out that one of the owners of Verses Rubber Stamps had a family member who passed away. I pulled out this Love Becomes a Memory stamp and embossed it with white embossing powder onto some mint cardstock. I also used a stamp from Magenta which looks like breezy grass and stamped it across the bottom of the sentiment panel as well as the bottom of the card base.
I cut out the sentiment with a stitched rectangle die, and then I cut a slightly larger rectangle from white cardstock for a mat. Some white taffeta ribbon below the sentiment was the last touch I added before putting this in the mail.
As much as I don't like the reason for making sympathy cards, I know they are much appreciated by the recipients. The beautiful sympathy verses from Verses Rubber Stamps really do help make it easier to create sympathy cards.
