I have a hard time coming up with sympathy card ideas. Maybe because I like to shy away from all things sad or maybe just because they really are hard to create and know what to say.
I found this website that helps at least get your brain going when you don’t know what to say. I hope you find it helpful too! http://www.bestcardmessages.com/ There are ideas for Birthday, Baby, Anniversary, etc, and of course Sympathy.
I created this simply but elegant sympathy card for a class I was teaching and really grew to love it.
