With Deepest Sympathy card made using Lovely Floral Cricut cartridge.

Hello, everyone!

Today I have a sympathy card that I made using the Lovely Floral Cricut Lite cartridge. I had not noticed this cut when I first made stuff with this cartridge during the release in June. I think it is great for a sympathy card though!

I cut the flower at 3".

I used SU! patterned paper.
The ribbon and stamp is from Papertrey Ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Make sure you check back in tomorrow because I have another sympathy card that I made with one of my favorite lite cartridges!!

Also, click on over to Joy's and my personal blogs. We still have lots more projects to show you using the new cartridges that were just released!

This turned out lovely. These have got to be the hardest cards to make. Unfortanutly I will be making one this week. A guy I used to work with years ago, him and his son was killed in a car accident this weekend, so hard. His son would of been 20 years old today. I need to think of manly sympathy cards.

Lovely card. I like how subdued the colors are.

Lovely card, just right. I do tend to opt out and buy sympathy cards because they are so hard. I guess the time to make them is before you are in grief...sigh...

Great job with such a tough card to make.I am like everyone else. I have a hard time with sympathy cards. It is just so hard to know what to say. Before I got my cricut I made cards with creata card software they have some nice sayings and I still use it a lot for that.

It is nice to see sympathy cards. We don't like to send them but handmade ones mean so much more in the recipients time of need. Thanks for a great card!

Jennie said...

Very pretty card. Simpathy cards are always so difficult. It's much easier to make them ahead of when you actually need one as it can get pretty emotional on some!

Thanks for spending this week on sympathy cards. They are often needed and I have best intentions to make them but then don't. Thanks for the ideas especially simple ones as I don't want to take forever when I need one. What I really need to do is make up a bunch of these and have them ready

Sandy said...

Such a sweet card, but can be used for many things if you change the wording.

SHELLEE said...

Very nice card! Elegant and understated. But I also think that with a slight change to the colors and sentiment stamp, this could also be a bright cheery card. The cut is quite versitile. Thanks for sharing!
Shellee

Ann said...

Very nice card - I agree with others, this is the hardest kind to put together. I try to do it when no one is sick or close to passing. That way it seems like just another card in my card box!

A beautiful card for a very difficult time in someone's life.

ScrappyMama said...

This is a beautiful sympathy card. Thank you so much for making these types of cards your focus for the week; you're right, they are not fun cards to make but I think they could be some of the most important cards we ever make. It's hard to find inspiration for these cards &, most likely, when you're in the need of this type of card, this is when you'll need inspiration the most. Thanks for sharing with us!
