Sending a sympathy card means a time of sadness for a death of a loved one. Sending a hand made sympathy card is one wonderful way to show the bereaved that you care and saddened by this loss. Just like all kind of card making, you have to be guided by who you are sending the card to. If the grieving person is religious, you can create a card with religious designs and messages. Nevertheless, most people will appreciate a hand made sympathy card that shows your thoughtfulness and care.

When making a hand made sympathy card, there are several things to consider. Use neutral or sober colors in designing your card and refrain from using bright and garish colors.  Choose colors that are muted and light to keep up with the gravity of the situation. Choose a simple design as it helps highlight the sympathy message that you will write. Never embellish the card with sequins and glitter.

In making your hand made sympathy card, there are some materials you will need depending on what you prefer. Some of the things you can use include a piece of patterned wallpaper, black card stock, strong glue, black organza ribbon, white card paper, craft knife and scissors.
