Hi everyone. Happy Wednesday.
It's week 38 of our WSC Getting Sketchy and we have another fabulous sketch for you this week...meet MFTWSC38.
I needed to make a sympathy card. I am not going to lie...it totally sucks that I needed this card. I wanted to keep this rather simple, so I pulled out the beautiful Cleary Sentimental About Sympathy set. It has gorgeous sentiments and the sentiment I chose to use, "When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure" was exactly what I wanted to say.
All of the patterned paper is A Beautiful Life from My Minds Eye, and I cut Fossil Cardstock with the First Class Friend Die-Namics and used the center portion of the large die for the focal panel for my sentiment. I cut out a heart using the Homespun Birdhouse Die-Namics out of some of the same patterned paper, and adorned it quite simply with a button cut from Cork using the Button Quartet Die-Namics tied with a bit of twine. I used a piece of crocheted lace as the horizontal panel and added some zig zag machine stitching.
On the inside, I kept it super simple again with some more patterned paper, and a simple sentiment panel which reads "You Are In My Thoughts".
Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card today:
