Sympathy card - dove

Unfortunately I needed a couple sympathy cards this week. I designed a Dove to use on these sympathy cards, if you would like to have the Dove SVG click Here. I used a regular ballpoint pen to outline the edges to help give the dove some definition.

The first card is pretty straight forward - quick and easy. The green leaf is a Martha Steward punch. For the quote I used 'Someone remembers, someone cares, your name is whispered in someone's prayers.'

For the second card I pulled out my Wild Card cartridge. For this card I used the Swoop (page 42). I was playing around with the size and found that the 4.5 inch would fit into a standard A2 envelope.


  1. Sympathy cards are always difficult to make for me. Thanks for the freebie.

  2. Both of your cards are beautiful, Shelly. I love the bird too, and I appreciate you sharing him.

  6. Very pretty...I love both your cards...sympathy cards are always hard to do but you really did a great job on these.


  7. Oh my gosh, these are sooooo pretty. I wish I had had these cut files when I had to make the card for my cousin. I have another to make and with the aging of my dear family, probably more to do. I would love these files.
