Sympathy Card On CCR

 
Hi everyone, Sheila here and I am so excited that I get to share with you today a card that I designed using the CTMH Art Philosphy cartridge. I jsut love the simplicity and the complex cut, don't you? I have to admit that even though I cut the card base, I didn't use it as I don't like the score marks it left in my paper. And there is no option to tkae them out on this card, so I cut my own base and rounded the edges.



Now wasn't that just too simple? The longest part of this project was the cut... you know how long intricate cuts take!!! I was just so anxious to see this. As you can see I spen most of my time lining up my stamping. I am doing good at stamping it just takes me a while to get it just the way I like it.


All my edges were inked with the Tim Holtz Spiced Marmelade Distress Ink, but then I found that the CTMH Saddle ink works the same and used that also. I used 4 My Friend D1510 to stamp the front of the card Sorry for your loss.
Then on the inside of the card I used Sympathy Card Chatter D1476 to stamp the inside sentiment and it looked beautiful.
This is another close up of the card. I think it is very tasteful and elegant and sure to let others know you really care.
I hope you enjoyed today's post. Thank you for your sweet sweet words of encouragement. You comments continue to inspire me to share with you.

What a beautiful card! I would think it could be adapted for any occasion. Too bad Footloose is no longer available. I love that CTMH paper. Excited to see Abby's Easter Card post!

Beautiful card Sheila, I am yet to try CCR. I know it's similar to the Gypsy, just a bigger screen but I just haven't tried it yet :)

Very nice. At my age, it seems I need sympathy cards a lot more often and I struggle so much making them because I wait until I HAVE to have one to do one. I need to try this now and have it on hand. TFS
