This is my second sympathy card today. I made this one for my son-in-law's Mom, whose father passed away this week (see previous post). I was going to do an all white card, but the black touch just seemed appropriate.
The card was done from this week's sketch over at cardabilities. I just found this blog, and I am so excited about it. I hope to use these sketches a lot. They are awesome! And their scrapbooking sketches (entitled, "sketchabilities," which can be found here) are just as wonderful. I will be visiting them a lot!
The hearts are a Martha Stewart punch.
The flower was made from a scalloped circle punch. I cannot remember where I found the instructions, but you punch them out, stack them together (3 at a time), cut at the notches, put a brad in, and then fluff them.
The scalloped border was cut from the Cricut Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.
The flourishes were cut from the Storybook Cricut cartridge.
