Hiya, today I have a selection of Mixed Sympathy Cards for you. These are not the ones that were in a previous post but some different ones that includes cards made using the Cricut, Spellbinders and Embossing Folders. I always think these are such difficult cards to make and ones that generally are not touched upon by us bloggers very often which leaves you guys a little at sea for ideas and inspiration. I hope this helps 🙂

So the first one I have for you I made using a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder onto holographic mirri board, which perhaps would not be your first choice for a sympathy card, However I do think silver and white work well for condolence cards and the card was A6 so not too big and the design on the Embossing Folder was one that really showed on the holographic card. I think this would have worked just as well on a pearlescent card, but you definitely need a cardstock like that to really emphasise the embossing, especially when you are embossing an actual picture not just a design.

The next two cards are both Anna Griffin but very different in style. The first one I would say is very traditional Anna, the second was actually a result of me testing out some new to me Anna stamps. I had stamped them in black ink on white gloss card in lines and suddenly realised that if I cut it to size it would fit an A6 card perfectly and look so nice. It was only when I put it together that I felt it would make a good sympathy card:

This next one is probably my personal favourite of this Bunch and is made using a lovely Spellbinders Cross Die

Lastly we have a Cricut card that was made from the Phrases Cartridge. I decided not to go down the traditional colour cute here but still obviously muted tones. If you would like to make this Cricut Phrases Sorry For Your Loss Card then I have again added a free download of the Cricut files in my store. Just click HERE to go to the ‘product’!

  1. Amanda I really liked the Holographic card with the bird. That one struck me right off. I love all the colors and it feels like the way paradise might look..I mean it was happy and colorful and out of this world feeling. I loved it.
