Thinking of You Card
I made this card for a friend who recently lost her father-in-law. Sympathy cards are always hard for me to make. I want them to be simple, but comforting. I still have tons of cards that were sent to me when my father died 19 years ago and they still bring me comfort when I pull them out and read them. Hopefully this card will bring a little bit of comfort to their family.
ETA: I have had a lot of questions about how I embossed the card. To get the space in the middle, I ran the cardstock through my cuttlebug twice. The first time, I had the folder about 3/4 of the way down the paper. Then I flipped the embossing folder around and slipped the bottom of the paper inside just a tiny bit. That left the blank strip in the middle. Then I used my scoring tool to add a line on the top and bottom of the flat section. Hope that helps. *Ü*
