Child Sympathy Card
I think sympathy cards are among the most challenging cards to make, and it is especially difficult if it is for the loss of a young child. I recently needed a card to send to friends who lost their three year old granddaughter. She had a rare, childhood form of kidney cancer but showed no signs or symptoms of having the disease, so her death was completely unexpected. I cannot even begin to imagine what that would be like, and there is very little anyone can say or do to make it better. So I really struggled with this card.
“God didn’t promise days without pain,
laughter without sorrow, or sun without rain.
But God did promise strength for the day,
comfort for the tears, and a light for the way.
And for all who believe in His kingdom above,
He answers their faith with everlasting love.”
The bear image was created with 3 stamps that are layered on top of one another. I used Gina K Kraft ink for stamp #1 (the most solid of the three stamps/lightest ink), Gina K Warm Cocoa for stamp #2, and Stampin’ Up Tip Top Taupe for stamp #3. The greeting is from the “Sentimental Bouquet” stamp set from Gina K Designs and was stamped with SU Tip Top Taupe ink. I used water color paper, Stampin’ Up Tip Top Taupe card stock, and printed paper called “Tan Floral Tapestry” from Hot Off The Press/Paper Pizazz.
Thanks for checking out my card project.
