Heartfelt Condolences with Psalm 23 – by Sharon Johnson

Good Sunday morning. May you all have a blessed day today!

I’m sharing a sympathy card I made with my favorite sympathy verse on the front – Psalm 23. It’s a long verse/large stamp and serves as the focal point, and I just never tire of using this on the front of a sympathy card.

This card is a bit larger than standard at about 4.5′ x 6.5″.

I love the tones in the designer paper used – Wonderful Autumn by Studio Light. Such a gorgeous pad! I thought this sheet made for a perfect sympathy card.

Psalm 23 is included in our stamp set called Deepest Sympathy.

The ‘heartfelt condolences’ are from our Sympathy Sentiments Set 2.

Both stamp sets are part of our Sympathy Series of stamps.

I created the inside sentiment using stamps from Deepest Sympathy and Sympathy Sentiments Set 1.

Using our Sympathy Series of stamp sets gives you so many options to create perfectly coordinated sentiments for both the card front and inside.

I used a favorite die to cut the focal image – Hemstitch Rectangles by Spellbinders.

In an effort to get ahead on my sympathy cards, I have about 1/2 dozen more of Psalm 23 stamped onto more sheets from this paper pad. Even if I don’t get the cards made up ahead of time and added to my stash, having the scripture verse stamped onto paper is a good start if I need one in a rush!

One can never have enough sympathy cards on hand.


I used:

Stamps: Sympathy Series by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps (all 3 sets used)

Dies: Spellbinders Hemstitch Rectangles

Tag die on card front is a retired JustRite die. Find Spellbinders tag dies here – ALL REDUCED!

Paper: Wonderful Autumn by Studio Light

Cardstock -Yellow, Peach, Rust

Ink: VersaFine – Onyx Black

Adhesives:  3D Foam SquaresEZ Runner


This is our Sympathy Series of stamps.

Deepest Sympathy, Sympathy Sentiments SET 1 and Sympathy Sentiments SET 2

They are all perfectly coordinated to mix and match.

I mixed sentiments from all 3 sets on my card today.

Please note there is a PET sentiment on SET 2. When combining that with any of the other sentiments on these sets you’ll be able to make endless pet sympathy cards.

Each set is available individually or bundled.
