Sympathy snippets card

 Hello peeps, I hope you are all well and had a fabulous weekend.

It's that time of year again when I cannot show much of what I am making (it would spoil the surprise come the 25th!).

However, this is a card I made for a friend whose mum died recently.  Having lost my dad this year I really appreciated those cards I was sent that weren't black and white and didn't have words such as "sorry for your loss" I thought back to those cards and made one that hopefully she liked.

The great thing about this card was that it was all from the ever overflowing scrap box.  
I embossed some pearl card and punched a slim strip with my leaf punch.  I die cut some music paper with a butterfly die (borrowed from one of the coven!).  I used Tim Holtz tea dye DI to warm up the colours a bit and added a simple sentiment.

As its all from my scrap box I am entering this into the snippets playground.

Happy crafting



  1. A really lovely card for such a sad occasion.

  2. Oh Kyla, this is beautiful. I'm with you about not liking 'sympathy cards' but this puts across the message perfectly. And the soft colours are perfect.

    I fixed your link fine chick - when you link and it asks you to insert an image - the third option down (pick one from my website or something like that) is the one to go for. But just shout if you have probs!

    Hugs, Di xx

    1. Thanks Di, that was the link I chose (as per usual) but it was just having a hissy fit!! :-)

    2. Snigger - that's Mr Linky for you :)

  3. Wow, that is such a beautiful snippets card, Kyla! I love that you have done the butterfly in the music print, as well! It's always so hard to know what to say on sympathy cards. I'm sorry to hear about your friend's mom and I'm sure she will love this card. I'm also sorry to hear your dad passed away earlier this year. Hugs, Darnell
