make a sympathy card.I chose to go serious, although I have seen some great silly commiseration cards recently, at the Paper Wishes website.
This is a card sketch I have used before--love the window and the dimensional flower (see details below). This time I added a scripture verse and some dandelion images to the front,
and "sympathy" on the inside.
Circle-punch flower tutorial:
Create a template to help with folding the petals, by trimming the contrasting circle into the shape shown below. You will cut off a similar amount on both sides of the circle, forming a point on one side.
Fold one side of the DP circle over the cut edge of the template; score.
Fold the second side of the DP circle over the template, score. Remove the template and fold your remaining petals in the same manner.
Arrange the finished petals into a flower-shape and glue to your project. You can create a five-or six-petal flower (or even more) depending on how "fat" you make your template. Some space between the petals looks okay, too.
Have fun with the double-sided paper; you could make a flower using the reverse side of the paper on the same project.
