17 Thinking of You

Hello everyone. Stopping in today to share a sympathy card I made yesterday.  I had this nice long weekend and knew I wanted to at least get this card made, yet I waited till last minute to do it. 

Not long ago I made a wedding card for the Cricut Circle Blog using two of the Cuttlebug Embossing Plus folders and I knew when I finished it that it would be a card I would repeat for other occasions, changing colors, sentiments and embellishments as needed. As elegant and detailed as it appears, it's not that difficult.  The  embossing plus folders do most of  the work.

The butterfly is from the Cricut Everyday Pop-ups cartridge.  Cut from light yellow paper and  glimmer misted.  I actually used several different colors, lightly wiping them off, until I found a look I liked with the card.

The flower is made with the Cuttlebug Daisy Quilling kit and Cuttlebug Rose Quillilng kit (leaves).  Love these flowers and so easy!!  Also cut from yellow paper and glimmer misted them the color I wanted.  

The Thinking of You sentiment is from the Cricut American Alphabet preloaded cartridge on the Expression 2.  I love the alphabets and phrases on this cartridge.  Just the right amount of swirls on them.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great week!
