How to Make a Simple Sympathy Card

We were going to keep this private, but everyone needs to have a simple sympathy card in their handmade card stash.  It’s hard enough to comfort a friend when they’ve lost a loved one.  It’s not like you humans can crawl up in their lap or lick their face.

And no one gave you a tail to wag!

So since many of you wanted to know how to make the simple sympathy card that we featured earlier this week, I told Ann that would be a perfect feature for today’s rubber stamping technique video.

You can view this on You Tube here.
