Variety of Sympathy Cards

I was asked a while ago to create some sympathy cards for a friend. I don't think anyone likes making sympathy cards as they are never for an occasion for which we want to create... however, it is always nice to have a handmade card on hand. 

These ones were quick and easy - all are from patterns in Make It From Your Heart - Vol.4. 
I also chose the colour schemes from Love of Colour. 

I did a couple of each card to make things go a little faster. 

The first card was based on a flourish die from Penny Black. The papers are all retired Fundamental papers with ribbon placed lengthwise. 

The second card was based on a Memory Box die called Stem Triptych and I love how the stem is broken into three parts.

The last card was based on three dies from Creative Expressions called Queen Anne's Lace. I love the look of these when they are cut and I decided to group them together and 
tie the bottom with a bow. 

Hopefully these cards will be put to good use!
