Sympathy Cards

Here are some  Sympathy cards that I made in the past.  Most of them are quilled.  These were made before I had my Big Shot  embossing machine. These first ones are some of my early cards.  You'll see a lot of my folded roses on these.  I also like to use punched leaves, and tiny punched flowers as well.
 

This next one was a design team project using black and white... The punched flowers are velvet/suede paper. 
These 2 are similar in design.  I used the Onion Holder to make the cross on them.  I like to use Ornare (paper pricking) to accent the quilling.  Pearl Papers were used for both.


For this next one, I embossed the outside, and  hand embosed the flowers ont he square using a brass template.  Again, pearl papers were used. The Green leaf one was done with peel offs on water color paper, and colored with Tombow markers.  This is a fun technique. The gold leaf on the black card is the inside of the leaf peel off.

All are very lovely, and I particularly like your 'onion holder' crosses.
