Now a days, sympathy cards do not have to be dull and deary. It now can be with colors as it brightens people’s life. Although in the Chinese Tradition, the red in the card itself is a big NO, NO because it represents good luck and is often used in weddings and birthdays … but other culture may think it is ok. It would be nice to know if red can be used in other cultures, and I would like your feedback as to what is your culture, and what colors are not suppose to use when it comes to sympathy cards.
Here I used the Petals A Plenty on the real red cardstock to give it some subtle, airy, elegant feeling and not over powering the main image. I added brads on both sides to give balance. Because it was too red, the old olive ribbon was added last to give it a balance of color. The oval was sponged in olive green.
