Today I’m sharing a very elegant sympathy card featuring new releases from Waffle Flower Crafts.
Even though there are many steps to this card, the end result is very peaceful and calm.
I’m also testing out two cardstocks for hot foiling today and check out my tutorial to see which one worked the best!
I love a touch of shine for a sympathy greeting and the With Sympathy Duo Hot Foil Plates and coordinating dies are lovely staples to have on hand when needed!

Kay Furnish says
Beautiful card, Cathy! I wouldn’t have thought to use those colors on a sympathy card, but I think the recipient would have their spirits lifted when they open the envelope.
Dee Earnshaw says
love the soft colors on this sympathy card – definitely “elegant”:)
I really like this sympathy card!! Colors are so soothing and I want to get the products and make up some in soothing colors to have on hand. When you need them it is sometimes hard to make them. If they are already done then I can concentrate on the message I need to send to the recipient. Thanks Cathy for a really good card!!
Laura J Millerick says
Thank you Cathy for all the you tube videos you do! You are really awesome I hope you know that. My son is a graphic designer! I always told my children (I have 6 of them) that they need to do something they really love. I mean work is work, but you should still sort of like it right? Oldest to youngest careers are: Librarian (currently a library director), graphic designer, Plumber (he is awesome and who doesn’t want a plumber in the family), next a daughter who lost her retail position due to covid and now raising an 18 month old baby boy-an important job!, next a son who is in a great law firm doing their billing, he loves it! and they love him and my youngest a school secretary, and also has her side business as a photographer doing Photo shoots for many occasions.- but not a wedding photographer. Okay that’s enough about my kids. Thanks again and the reason I wrote all that is because I love your career path! – Laura
I really like the soft colors you used, perfect for a Sympathy card.
Thanks for sharing and for the video.

That embossed and stenciled card is one of my favorites I’ve ever seen you make and what a great concept in our crafting world!
Julie H says
I love watching your videos. I also adore the fact that you don’t have a huge extra room in your house for a total craft room, like many of us don’t have that luxury! Waffle Flowers has been a favorite of mine for a long time. (PS – the 10th is my B-day, what a nice gift that would be :-))

Beautiful color choice, Cathy. Soothing is comforting so… wonderful idea. Don’t want to think about the person the card is for in the moment; so much better to have something this lovely on hand so you just have to struggle with the note.

I love this card. The colors you used are soothing but not depressing. Sympathy cards are SO hard!
