Sympathy Card

 Hello and welcome! I was in need of some sympathy cards and I thought it might be nice to create a little scene using the bench from a stamp and die set (WPlus9 New Home) that just arrived in the mail.
Sympathy Card using Altenew Garden Grow, Hero Arts January 2019 My Monthly Hero and WPlus9 New Home.
I wanted to pair it with two of my go-to stamp and die sets:  Altenew Garden Grow and Hero Arts January 2019 My Monthly Hero.  I started by stamping a background using SSS Sketchy Lines Background Stamp.  From black cardstock, I die cut the sentiment (SSS) twice and then glued together.  I Copic colored the potted plants, then die cut, assembled and adhered to the background using foam tape.

As You See It Challenge.  My "go to" dies that I use most often are Altenew's Garden Grow and My Monthly Hero January 2019.  I love to use them both in scene cards. 

Thank you for stopping by!


  1. I love the scene you've created, Karen, and you've done a lovely job of colouring it. Your choice of colours is very appropriate for the sympathy card you've made. It sounds like you get a lot of use out of your favourite dies, too! Thanks for playing along with us at As You See It Challenges!

  2. What a wonderful scene you've put together with dies from several companies. It's so suitable for a sympathy card. Thanks so much for joining us this week at Little Red Wagon!

  3. What a lovely scene, and gorgeous sentiment! This will certainly bring comfort and a little smile to a hurting person! Thanks for sharing this with us at AYSI this week!!

  4. I just want to sit beside that little bird and offer comfort. Great card! Thanks for sharing it with us at the As You See It Challenge blog!

  5. I love your collection of pots alongside your bench to create a calm, soothing scene, perfect for a sympathy card. The addition of the bird is a nice touch too - a reminder that you are not alone. Sounds like your dies are proving super useful. Thanks for sharing your creation with us over at AYSI this week!
