Cricut Design Studio
Cricut Cartridges (see below)
Glue (regular & Zig Two-Way for small items)
Martha Stewart corner/border punch (Quilted)
Rubber Stamp – “Thinking of You”
Cricut Cartridges used:-
Cindy Loo – frame w/ swirl
Jasmine – “With Sympathy”
Sentimentals – envelope, in dove’s mouth
The sentiment is computer-generated.
Sympathy cards, to me, are supposed to be minimal, but tasteful --- w/ not too much glitz. When I spotted the Anaglypta paper, the whole card just too flight (no pun intended). I used Martha’s Punch around the Page for a background for the dove, in flight, adding a li’l envelope, depicting "sending a message".
I used Design Studio to be able to skew the frame, inside the card, to the size I needed. It was great to be able to stretch/size the swirl to fit the stretched image. This can also be achieved on the Cricut Gypsy. Wasn’t sure whether the sentiment (With Sympathy) from “Jasmine” would rip, because it was so tiny, but I think one of my angels was w/ me, whilst I was creating this card. Everything just fell into place, nicely.
Thanks for looking. Hopefully, you won’t have to make too many Sympathy cards but, just in case you do, you are more than welcome to scraplift mine. :-)
