Sympathy Cards


I have been making quite a few sympathy cards lately. We have had a death in my husband's family. We are mourning a young Dad, married with 5 kids. I didn't have any cards made ahead of time and sympathy cards can be the toughest to make. I managed to get a photo of a couple of them before they go to loved ones. Times like these make me thankful that our family has faith and an eternal hope as we will see our loved ones again in heaven.
These are very simple cards but I wanted the sentiment to be the focus.

Gorgeous cards! I never think to make sympathy cards either. It's good to have a few onhand and hopefully never have to send them.

I'm sorry for your loss.
