Pencil-Sketch Sympathy


Hi there I’m over on the Winnie & Walter Blog today, and I’ll be sharing with you one of the most-heartfelt cards that you can sent. Even though sympathy cards are the least liked cards to make and give, they are needed and can be of great comfort to the receiver.


For my card I stamped a floral bouquet using In Bloom: Elsa’s Florals in a light grey ink. Even though this floral set has lots of winter florals it is great for all year round, roses are great for all occasions right?!?! I wanted my images to have a pencil-sketch look about them so I used a grey coloured pencil to trace the stamped images and add in some simple shading.


I added some sliver washi on the edge of my card blank just a little away from the edge to leave a thin strip of white too. For the sentiment I used one from A Tree For All Seasons, this is such a great set and has lots of different sentiments in a gorgeous font.

I would really love to know what you think of my card! Please leave me a comment, maybe even subscribe to my YouTube channel or follow my blog. If your interested, I’m also on Facebook and I share sneak peeks of my projects (and my life) on Instagram.

Hope you have a beautiful day and I hope to see you again soon!

Hugs Lydia xxx
