Hi, I'm Holly Silva and I've been a crafts expert for about 15 years now. Today, we're going to work on something a little bit sadder. It's a condolences card. We need to give them so we have to make them sometimes. Let's get started. So we're making a condolences card. Sometimes sad things happen to people that we know and care about. So we like to send them cards to let them know how much we care. These are called condolences card. Look it up. Oh you are looking it up. See here it is, right here. OK. So we're going to cut in a half-ish and usually condolences cards you send flowers along with it. I'm drawing nice little flowers. They're kind, they brighten somebody's day. Especially if it's a little hand drawn flower. We'll just do something nice here. Now I'm doing it with pastels which work really great on construction paper such as this because it's like a crayon but it's a little more waxy. And that's nice. See it's nothing too intrusive and then I have just a nice little green and we'll put some leaves on the flowers like that. And then we can even make a cute little pink bow. Because we're sorry. We want to extend our sorrow to them and our sympathy. And on the front of it you might want to write something in cursive because cursive is always nice with sympathy cards for some reason. So write sympathy. Our sympathy. Dot, dot, dot. On the outside. That would be really nice. And then on the inside say I'm sorry for your loss or something really nice that you want to write inside to somebody who may be grieving or sad. Because you want to make them happy. Well there was your condolences card. It's always touching when you send something from the heart. And when somebody receives it, especially when they're experiencing grief, and all of those things that you're sending condolences for is often comforting. So just know that they're going to enjoy your card hopefully as much as you enjoy making it. If you have any questions, let us know. See you next time.
