When I first saw the sympathy cards posted on this cricut thread by Pinklady and Dj, I knew that was the style card I needed to make for a couple that we know. I used portions of both of the cards.
I don't have the cricut cartridges needed to make the cards above and even considered buying one or two but time was a factor. So I needed to rethink things a little. I remembered that I have a Christmas stamp by Rhonda Farrer that I could use if I masked out some of the design. Then for the background I could use the stylized flowers cuttlebug folder. The flowers are the retro flower punch by ek success.
Here is my version of the sympathy cards in the link above. I also added a subtle sparkle effect to the bird with midnight black glitter. I didn't have a sympathy stamp that I liked so I used a suitable font on my computer and printed it out on some card.
