Sympathy card

I actually got to craft a little bit on Sunday, YEAH!! and finally got to play with my Cuttle Bug (oh how I missed it so).
Today I have a sympathy card, actually two, as I made them in two different colors I really need to have some of those on hand, just in case. Those are the type of cards you always hope to never have to use, but unfortunately you do end up needing them :(
Well, here is my card...
The sentiment is printed on the card itself and then the embossed card stock is attached on top of it. I used crocheting yarn around the card to add little more character. There is also a little bit of stickles around the sentiment (though it's hard to see it). This is a dark purple card stock, but unfortunately the color does not show correctly on the picture.
And then I made the blue one...
Here I combined two different folders and also used beads to crisscross my yarn...
I popped those corner rectangles on dimensionals to allow for the yarn to hang, which also helped the beads to not stick out so much :)
This card is for: Cuttlebug Challenge - to make a sympathy card.
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturdays - no image, just sentiment
Thank you for stopping by today. Enjoy your week!

  2. Very good idea to create the sympathy cards before you need them...I never like creating them "when" I need them....no fun at all.
