Sympathy cards



The time had come for me to stock my hubbies office with Sympathy cards again. He's a partner in a International Accounting firm. Sadly...he has had a lot of clients pass away...or parents of clients. He likes to send out my homemade cards...soooo...that means a Sympathy card assembly line. Once I settle on a design, I usually make 24. I chose this cute thank you card designed by Lori Whitlock...I just removed the thank you and created my own sentiment and shadow using computer fonts...voila. I love using computer fonts to cut and weld titles and shadows...love this feature on the Cameo!! Thanks for stopping by my happy place...Lee-Ann :)



Recipe:

  1. SU-Kraft cardstock, tiny circle punch
  2. Computer fonts-Times New Roman and Pacifico and the offset for the shadow
  3. Authentique-Blissful paper line
  4. Lori Whitlock #1 Thank you card-cut A2 size
  5. GooseBumpz Embossing folder-chain
  6. Cuttlebug Embossing Folder-Kassie's Brocade
  7. CTMH-Cocoa ink
  8. Hero Arts-Sympathy stamp set
  9. EK Success flower punch
  10. Signo white gel pen
  11. Making Memories pearl heart
  12. Versafine Black onyx ink

Really nice card, Lee-Ann! So you can print any word or phrase with shadows? The possibilities are endless! VERY COOL!
