With Heartfelt Sympathy

Here is a nice and simple sympathy card I made for a couple of challenges today. It is 6"x6" and all the smaller squares are 1 3/4"x1 3/4." I used the birdbath cut from French Manor and cut it at 3." The sentiment is a stamp I had in my stash and I framed it using a Nestabilities die. I used some pop-dots to adhere the birdbath to the card and also the bird to the birdbath. I also added glossy accents to the water in the birdbath, which I think gives it a great effect.
Supplies used:
  • Cricut cartridge: French Manor - birdbath
  • Nestabilities die: labels 4
  • Stamp: MSE Clear Stamps - sympathy sentiment
  • Ink: Tsukineko - night sky
  • Cardstock: Martha Stewart - all cardstock except the blue ones; The Paper Company - blue cardstock
  • Glossy Accents
  • Pearls: Recollections
I made this for the following challenges:
