Paper Piecings By Nikki DT Offering - Sympathy Card

Good Morning Monday……….I bet if you’re like me you have on occasion needed to design sympathy cards.  Some can be very somber and some can hopefully generate a smile to lift the spirit of those who are hurting.  I opt for the latter type.  Here is an example of how I used the Always By Your Side Collection by Paper Piecings by Nikki which is located at her online store

For the sympathy card, the base, and the insert – I made the paper for the base using the second image from this collection, some ribbon, my crimper and corner chomper, gel pens after fussy cutting the darling bears, frosted lace Stickles, and appropriate sympathy sentiments from Pink By Design.

You can do so much with these piecings using them as a springboard for your imagination for whatever the occasion might be.

Remember, no matter how you piece your paper, have fun with it! ………………cyberhugs..........Mama LoveBug
