Fabric Sympathy Card

I just came across a photo I wanted to show you last year, but I forgot.  It happens.  More than I’d like to admit. 

This is a card I made for a friend who lost someone she was close to.  I wanted the personal touch of making the card myself, while keeping it toned down and respectful.  I was very happy with the way it turned out.

To make this, I just cut pieces of fabric and stitched them onto a plain, white card using my sewing machine.  I also made an envelope by stitching some cardstock to fit the card.

Sometimes I have to remind myself that thoughtful doesn’t have to be complicated.
