I always find it difficult to come up with a design for a sympathy card. A friend's nephew was tragically involved in a fatal accident this week and I've been trying to think, over the last couple of days, of an appropriate design for a card to send. I didn't want a design with lots of flowers, as I wanted to make the card a bit more masculine. By chance, a die I won for a challenge back in September arrived yesterday. It seemed fate that it arrived this week, because as soon as I saw it, I knew it would be perfect for my card.
I was wondering about the best way to add a sentiment, when I remembered seeing the instructions for a clever way of getting the sentiment into a die cut shape over on Pixie's Crafty Workshop HERE. The die is "Birds on a Branch" by Die-namites.
As I used blue, black and white snippets, I'll be sharing my card on Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 156 & 157, when it reopens in the morning.
