Cricut Card Making Projects
This Cricut sympathy card is is made
using the Stamping Solutions cartridge.
Often one doesn’t get
lot of advance notice when it is time to send a card expressing our
and thoughts to someone in mourning. Although this card is easy to put
together quickly, it shows how much you care since it was handmade
by you. It says “I’m sorry” on the front,
and is embellished
with fern fronds. The verse inside was printed on a computer and
reads "Caring thoughts and deepest sympathy are with you in your time
of loss". The card measures 5” high by 7" wide.
Needed to Make this Cricut Sympathy Card:

8. The inside verse of the Cricut sympathy card was printed

extra cut embellishments I had from the Accent Essentials cartridge.
