Cherish Yesterday featured in Cricut Magazine

Today we have my second card that was featured in the January 2012 issue of Cricut Magazine. 
My husband got me the Damask Decor for Mother's Day and I had been itching to use it.  I think it is sooo beautiful!!  Unfortunately, I am using it, for the first time, to make a Sympathy card.  My bff's grandfather died this past weekend, at the age of 91.   I think that is remarkable, to live such a long healthy life and get to see your children as well as grandchildren and some great grandchildren, grow up.  I pray every day that my husband and I get that same kind of long life.
As for the card, I used the card function for the Damask3, cut at 5 1/2".  These are so pretty, you don't have to do anything to them but, I did decide to add ribbon, black stickles, and some gems.  For the ribbon, I just made a slit in the fold of the card, using a straight knife, that was the width of the ribbon, and ran it through.
On the inside, I cut a rectangle sheet in white and then added a strip of the teal paper and another piece of the black ribbon.   The sentiment is from Fiskars.


  1. Very pretty, great color choices, thanks so much for joining CCC!

  2. It looks like the cartridge you used would be very versatile. Great job. Thanks for joining us for this challenge.
