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.
