Sympathy card made using Lovely Floral Cricut Lite cartridge.

Hello, everyone!!

Today I post the last sympathy card. I hope I did not bum you guys out this week. Now remember just because it says 'with sympathy' on the card does not mean you can't change the sentiment yourself to 'thank you' or 'thinking of you'! Actually these cards this week have been versatile enough to include wedding congratulations or elegant birthday cards. Please remember that anything Joy and I make are just jumping off points for you. We want to inspire you to use your cricut more, but don't feel restricted to make things exactly the same. Change the sentiments to work for what YOU need. Change the colors we use to what YOU like. Substitute the cartridges we use and use YOUR favorite cartridges instead. At the risk of sounding like a cheesy commercial, with your cricut the only thing holding you back is your own creativity! The sky is the limit, folks!

Today's card is made using the Lovely Floral Cricut Lite cartridge.  This one has so many things on it that would be great for sympathy cards!

I cut this wonderful flower spray at 4 1/2".
I used more of those wonderful opaques from Close To My Heart to jazz up these beautiful flowers.
I used SU! paper and ribbon.
I used a Papertrey Ink stamp(would you expect anything else?)

Don't forget that Joy and I are each giving away Pink Expressions! Come check out the giveaways by clicking here ==>


Obsessed with Scrapbooking



Also, Joy and will be showing the NEW Smiley Faces cartridge on our blogs. Joy already has something up and I will have something up later on in the afternoon. Come check it out!

Have a wonderful weekend!

ScrappyMama said...

You have definitely not bummed me out this week; instead, what you've done is give me an inspiration file that I will, unfortunately, have use for one day. And, yes, these cards could all be easily converted to a card for a happier occasion than sympathy, but they are perfect for sympathy cards which are so hard to do. Thank you for all your wonderful ideas this week; I'm sorry that they were the result of such a hard time for you and your family. I always look forward to seeing what you & Joy put together for us!!!
