Sympathy Card Using The Heartfelt Hexagon Bundle

Create this beautiful handmade Sympathy Card using the Heartfelt Hexagon Bundle by Stampin’ Up! In times of loss, a handmade card can be a small but significant gesture of support and sympathy. The Heartfelt Hexagon Bundle offers a way to create cards that are not only beautiful but will also convey your compassion and thoughtfulness. By using a subtle color scheme, gentle patterns, and the comforting sentiment included in the Bundle, you can help make a big difference during tough times.

Sympathy Card Using The Heartfelt Hexagon Bundle in varying shades of green and yellow.  Uses a punched sentiment that says "with sincere sympathy" and the paper features beautiful leaves.

Unfortunately, when we need a Sympathy Card, we usually need to make one quickly so that we can get it on its way. To keep the card easy to make, I went with some pretty paper that became the focal point of the card. The Heartfelt Hexagon Punch made quick work of adding the sentiment and then a small bit of coordinating ribbon added a nice, but simple, embellishment to the card. This is a card you could easily make in less than 5 minutes.
