Bereavement

I couldn't help making another white on white "sympathy" card after the way this one turned out. I really think all the white causes one to think of purity, innocence and the Spirit. This one was a request from my mother-in-law for a distant relative suffering after a stillbirth.


The sentiment doesn't quite fit the frame but I gave myself some artistic license.

The embossed flourish frame is a Cuttlebug folder, the sentiment from With Sympathy and the sparkle is both blue rhinestones and clear Spica pen.

This card tears at my heartstrings. I know from past experience that it is THE perfect card for a miscarriage, the mother will appreciate it and treasure it. Beautiful.
