Something for Nothing: Sympathy Card

In light of recent events, I was compelled to design a card for those suffering a loss or are recovering. Check out the bottom of this post for your free printable!

It’s a card to give to friends, relatives or someone close to you. Ideal uses would be for those in grief, pain, sickness, or are suffering a loss. The outside says “Believing, Trusting, Hoping, Praying” and the inside is blank. I always find that a personal, handwritten message means much more to someone in pain. Even if you feel like you’re not good at writing something personal. Something short and sweet is always good to hear, like  “I can’t wait to see you back on your feet” or “I miss our conversations!”. Maybe even jot down what you are hoping for or a quick prayer.

This card is to be printed on 8.5″ x 11″ paper and has the crop marks to trim it down to the correct size of 10″ x 7″. Once you have your 10″ x 7″ card cut out, use a scoring pad to create a fold mark down the middle, right at 5″, like pictured. You could also fold this by hand.

And now you should have yourself a nice, folded sympathy card! As for the color inspiration of this card, I found an image at the website “design-seeds” called milk tones (pictured below). I always tweak the colors a bit to work for me, and that’s how I ended up with gray, wavy oval and fun dotted “confetti” border.
