For some reason, I really struggle with sympathy cards. Mostly, my struggle is with writing my condolences on the inside, but sometimes I have a hard time with the design and color scheme, too. The stamp set Love & Sympathy makes it pretty easy to come up with a simple handmade card to send to a grieving loved one. The painted flower image works great with markers, and it's not too girly of a flower that you can't use it to send to a man. The sentiments that come with the set are very nice, too. The quote by Sylvana Rossetti gives me a little prompting on what I might write on the inside. Or, you could stamp the other sentiment on the front, Sending Love and Sympathy, and then stamp the quote on the inside.
