I have been making cards for many years and for many situations and occasions. Most of them are happy and are easy for me to embrace, but some, like sympathy cards, are harder for me. This week I was asked to make a special card for a friend to give. You may recall I lost my first husband to cancer and when I hear the word I feel overwhelmed with sadness. I was asked to make a personalized card for a young man (37) who is losing his battle with cancer and will be with the Lord soon. My friend asked for a card of encouragement and love for this young husband, father and friend. This card weighed on my heart and soul this weekend and this is what I came up with.
Stamps: Stampers Anonymous
Paper: Gina K Designs, Watercolor
Ink: Distress Stains, Distress Ink, Archival Black
Misc: Clear Embossing Powder, Ribbon, Tim Holtz Index Labels
Bible verses and words of love and encouragement were included inside.
My thoughts and prayers go out to this young man and his family and friends. I hope this small card shows him how much he is loved by so many.
Until next time!
