Sympathy Card - Birch trees

This sympathy card was made with black ink and coloured with chalks. The chalks give a soft, muted colour. The moon was masked with a circle punched out from a post-it note and then I chalked over the circle mask. The mask was then removed and wispy clouds were sponged over the white moon.
 My friend Linda and I made these cards one day and we decided to decorate the inside with much the same scene but in a much more muted way so that the sentiment could be stamped on top of it.
Here is the inside of the card.

Next we decorated the envelope to match. Here is the envelope.

We made a similar card using different colours. We did this one with shades of blue and purple. We also decorated the inside and envelope as well.

It's never easy to have to send sympathy cards, but hopefully they help bring comfort to the family.
Take care. :)
