I’ve been in need of sympathy cards for friends and family members who have lost their cats lately. It’s so sad to lose loved ones. Pets have such a special place in our hearts.
So I started creating a few days ago and came up with a layout that is simple and sweet using a silhouette of a cat. I feel that using a black silhouette and refraining from using the more detailed cat stamp image is best for a sympathy card, because one can imagine their own cat within that shape. Plus I feel like the silhouette sort of symbolizes a feline friend that has passed on.
Rather than writing out all the details & directions for this card design, I shared that information in this Facebook Live broadcast. Then I uploaded the recorded version of this video to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). Be sure to watch the video (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), check out the measurements and products list below (for the card I demonstrated), scroll through the close-up photos of all three versions of this card, and then let me know if you have any questions.
I hope you enjoyed this video! Here are the measurements you’ll need if you plan to recreate the card I demonstrated.
- Whisper White Thick Cardstock
- 8-1/2” x 5-1/2” scored at 4-1/4” and folded in half
- Botanical Butterfly Designer Paper (FREE SAB pick)
- 2-3/4” x 4”
- Basic Black Cardstock
- 2-7/8” x 4-1/8”
- Calypso Coral Cardstock
- 3” x 4-1/4” (includes punched pieces too)
- Calypso Coral 1/8” Sheer Ribbon
- 5-6” (maybe less?)
Here are close-up photos of the Calypso Coral card.
And below are photos of the other two that I showed and talked about at the end of the video.
Thank you for visiting today. I hope you enjoyed what I shared.
