EZ with CZ: Clean & Simple Sympathy Card

Hi friends! Happy Wednesday! Please join me in welcoming back special guest Cathy Zielske in her latest edition of our monthly blog series; EZ with CZ! Be sure to watch the video for all the details and enjoy!

Hello friends! It’s Cathy Z. here to share a very clean and simple sympathy card design with you. While it’s never a happy occasion when loved ones or friends are experiencing a loss, it’s nice to create something handmade to let them know you are thinking of them.

Today’s card features a lovely leaf die cut with a colorful background, paired with a large, minimal design greeting.

A simple ink blended background adds a pop of color and in the video, I’ll show you how I saved time by NOT paper piecing this leaf.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks to Cathy for being our guest!

  1. I love this clean and simple look. Stamping the sub-sentiment directly on the card base was a great idea. Don’t think I would have liked the card quite as much if you had used a sentiment strip. Thanks for sharing and for the helpful video!

  2. This is a beautiful card. Changing out the sentiment, one could make it for anything from bday to thinking of you to get well.
    Thx for the video!
