CTMH Simple Sympathy Cards

My mother-in-law had been asking if I had any sympathy cards . . . I didn't really have any on hand so I made a few for her. I always prefer that sympathy cards be simple and understated, rather than too flowery or over-done.  So here are two of the cards I came up with.

The inside of both cards:

Materials Used (all Close to My Heart):
  • Treasure Life Acrylic Stamp Set
  • Best Wishes Acrylic Stamp Set
  • The sentiment on the front of the card is from the Tickled Pink Acrylic Stamp Set - promo item from 2009, not available to order
  • Cardstock: Blush, Crystal Blue, Colonial White
  • Ink: Chocolate, Blush, Crystal Blue
  • Other: Chocolate Brads, Foam Tape


  1. Carla I love these! Consider them scraplifted. I am so bad at sympathy cards and these are simply beautiful. TFS.

  2. These are simply beautiful, I agree with Cibele totally! Love this sweet friend!

  3. These are breathtaking! So elegant.

  4. Carla,
    These are perfect. I agree about "understated". When I was grieving - less was even more than I could take in. These are just elegant and to the point.


  5. Although making sympathy cards is not something anyone wants to do, these are beautiful!!
