Prima Spring Farmhouse Beautiful Life Sympathy Card
Hello, Friends! Well, it’s Friday, so I thought I’d pop in and share this Prima Spring Farmhouse Beautiful Life Sympathy Card that I made for my dear friend earlier this month. Dianne is one of my best friends on the planet. We were young wives together, raised babies together, cried, laughed, dieted, partied, fussed and made up…and through it all, grew as close as two friends can be in this life. So when Dianne’s mom passed away, i wanted to send something beautiful to Di to let her know that I was thinking of her and cared deeply about her loss.
I was privileged to know Grace for many years and she was one amazing woman. Born during the Great Depression, she came from very humble, country roots. Her life was filled with obstacles, yet she always found a way to overcome them while staying positive and vibrantly beautiful. She lived to be 96 years old! Isn’t that amazing? Always stylish, always classy, Grace lived a beautiful life. And that is what inspired this 5″ x 7″ top fold card made with papers from Prima’s Spring Farmhouse.
I know this is not your typical sympathy card…but it really makes me think of Grace. The focal image is a die cut wreath topped with Prima Flowers. The vintage cameo looks so soft and feminine in the center of the frilly flower. One of my cherished vintage buttons rests on top of the bow cluster of 1/2″ Champagne Wrinkled Ribbon and Gold Metallic String.
Prima Spring Farmhouse Beautiful Life Sympathy Card: A Peek Inside
The inside has a stamped sentiment on blush cardstock. I wrote my own personal message to Dianne on the 3×4 Journal card.
It’s never easy to say good-bye to one’s mother, so I hope this card brought Dianne great comfort. I like sending a card so much better than flowers. Flowers die…but cards stay beautiful for ages.
I hope I’ve shared some ideas and inspiration that you can use in your own crafty adventures. If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.
Thanks for stopping by!
