Advant Garden meets Rose Wonder

Sometimes we have to make cards we don’t like, sometimes we have to make sad cards, cards that are hard to make not because its a technique we struggle with but because its for a sad occasion… this was me last week. Last week I lost my grandfather after a year long battle with Cancer, I don’t write sad blog posts, I write happy smiley blog posts about happy crafting… but this card might be the hardest card I have ever had to make.

Sympathy Card using Avant Garden and Rose Garden from Stampin' Up! UK

I made two of these, one for my dad and the other for my Aunt. They are super simple, but what is more heartfelt than a hand stamped card.

The flower is from Avant Garden (FREE during Sale-a-bration, all you need to do to claim your copy is spend £45 in my Online Store before 31st March) while the sentiments are taken from Rose Wonder…. a set which I had totally not realised has several sentiments perfect for sad occasions, I had only managed to see the wedding side of this stamp set before.

I have to say though, the only thing harder than making these cards was writing in them…

For some things there are just no words…..
