4 Handmade Sympathy Cards You Can Make For Anyone

As a card maker, sympathy cards are some of the hardest, but most meaningful, to make. These 4 handmade sympathy cards are simple to make. I kept them very soft and calming.

For all of these cards, I have looked through the dies I have and found what I call “silhouette” dies. Dies that just cut floral/nature shapes; many different die sets have these.

I used the dies with a greeting set for my easy-to-make handmade sympathy cards.


The texture & dimension on these sympathy cards are hard to see in the photos so you know what that means? You don’t want to miss watching the video to see how beautiful these cards are!

How to Make These Handmade Sympathy Cards

All of the cards are made using the same measurements; I just varied the colors a bit.

The dies for this card were from the ‘Meadow Dies’ that coordinate with the ‘Quiet Meadow’ stamp set.
  • Card Base: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
  • Stamped/embossed layer: 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″
  • Layer: 3 3/4″ x 5″

Make sure to first stamp on the top layer, then emboss it.

These handmade sympathy cards are made using the Harvest Dies. They coordinate with the Natures Harvest stamp set.

The greetings for all of the cards are from the Peaceful Moments stamp set. A great all-occasion greeting stamp set. It is my “go to” set!

  1. I think sympathy cards need to be calming – I love what you have done with the cut-outs. Just enough to make the cards classy but not overdone. Perfect. I plan to use your ideas and I always use vanilla. To me it is comforting and subtle. Who needs to be jarred when mourning a death.
    Thanks so much.

  2. I would like to see a short video about how to use the stamp and emboss machines, what you need to get started and how it actually works.
    I enjoy watching your videos to get new inspiration.
    Thank you.
