Forever Fern Sympathy Card

Making sympathy cards can be so difficult, especially if you are trying to make them while emotional about the reason behind the card.  Make sympathy cards ahead of time and keep them until needed and it will be easier.  I used up all my stash so needed to make this one.  I love how it turned out and the recipient was very appreciative of it.  This card uses mostly new products and features a fun-fold.
