Footprints Sympathy Card

It has been crazy around here the last few days. Sunday night while at work we got a call from one our co-workers that her son had accidently shot himself. I rushed off to be with her and try to give her some comfort, as you can image losing a child is horrible.

Have been trying to put a couple of collage frames together for the funeral, and also wanted to make a card for everyone at work to sign. The result of the card is shown, made like a book so that people were not restricted on how much room was on the card, the pages were dark, added white paper on the top so that we didn't need a special pen. Printed the Footprints in the Sand poem from the computer and also added sentiments on each page. The sentiments are a classic oval, and matted the scalloped oval.

The front of the card is matted 3 times, wanted to keep the card clean and not too many frillys. Did use a corner rounder that I had from Creative Memories for each corner. Used a piece of ribbon to keep the book or card together and added brads at the top, they were silver, and I later found out that was his favorite color.

The viewings are today and tomorrow, the collage frames are complete, everything will go to my dear friend today. Hope that these creations will comfort her and her daughter in these difficult times.
