I really don't like making sympathy cards because that means someone has lost a loved one and their heart is hurting. Sadly, one of our students at my school is in the hospital and is not expected to live much longer. The mom is a fellow Cricut lover and scrapper and I wanted to make a very special card for her. I saw a Joy Fold Card over at Made by Momo's blog and thought I would make one. I liked the name of the card too. Maybe she will find a little joy knowing that so many teachers loved and cared for her son. After making it, I realized there was not enough room for all the teachers and staff to sign, so I improvised a little and added an additional fold out flap to the inside. I also made a matching envelope that I thought was sweet. The "With Sympathy" is from Wild Cards and the frame is from Storybook and raised with pop dots.
After making the Joy Fold Card, I went ahead and made another one using the same color scheme in case we needed another one to sign. This one was much more simple and has more writing room. I used MPS Everyday Occasions stamps on both of the cards.
