Today I want to share how to make thank you cards as a response to condolences. “Let me know if there is anything I can do” – a phrase we all have said to someone who is grieving. In today’s video I want to show you something you CAN do – give the gift of hand stamped thank you cards as a response to condolences.

The Stampin’ Up! Kindness & Compassion stamp set is perfect. Beautiful sentiments the recipient can send to those who have delivered food, flowers, and even just thanking those who were there in their time of need.

I have three different response to condolences cards to share with you. The layout is the same but I used up some Designer Series Paper that needed a little love.

Mix and match your favorite Designer Paper. The thank you cards will still have the same layout so they will all look nice together as a gift set.
