Sympathy card


I decided to make Gran a card after Gramps died at the weekend but I have never made a sympathy card before so wasn't too sure what to do. I thought plain and simple would be the best but I had nothing to go on it. I went to my local card shop which has some card making and scrapbooking supplies at the back (but very expensive) and found these lovely charm crosses. The loop snapped off the top of this one but I think it looks better anyway. I had already bought the K&Co paper a while ago simply because I loved it even though I had no idea what to use it for. I then added a ribbon I found in my stash of ribbons and some handmade paper and papermania vellum I already had too. I think it turned out alright and hope that Gran likes it.

Thanks for looking and thank you so much everyone for all the support and emails and messages you've sent; I really appreciate them.
