I always seem to need sympathy cards when I don't have any. So, in the process of preparing for the Christmas bazaar, I decided to include a couple sympathy cards. In a sense, the stamp sets I chose are from both ends of life's spectrum - Birthday Blossoms for the flowers and Thoughts & Prayers for the words of sympathy.
Since I was running out of Whisper White envelopes, I decided to use Very Vanilla. Then, because I had some embellishments left over from the Cottage Greetings Card Kit, I incorporated the same color scheme. I used the reverse punch on the Envelope Punch Board to round opposite corners.
