The Cricut images used in my card are from the Calligraphy Collection cartridge which are the Cricut Free Cuts of the week. Rather than cut the sympathy sentiment I used a Black Cricut pen to draw it and then colored it in. The Smokey Plum papers are long retired from Close to My Heart. I used the same Black Cricut pen to outline the flourish and sentiment panel. The shimmery white paper is Antique Gold by Recollections and the shimmery red heart is Cricut Red Pearl paper. My Design Space file is being shared here.
Here is a close up view so you can see the lovely shimmer in those papers.
My creative process usually involves finding a sketch challenge to enter and this week is no different. My inspiration came from this lovely Freshly Made Sketch #324:
I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
International Art and Soul: Use Something You Already Have (The patterned paper had a date on the backside that read "CTMH 2002"!)
Jo's Scrap Shack--Anything Goes
Make a project about Sympathy, or loss of a loved one (human or animal)
The FCCB Design Team is sponsoring a $25 gift card at
To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.
If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
