Hello, Friends! I’m back today to share a very quick and easy project with you. I used the Cut, Mat, Create Collection from Heartfelt Creations to make this elegant sympathy card. I love that the dies can be used not just for scrapbooking, but also in card making. It’s such a time saver to be able to just cut the mats with my A dies and the images with my B dies. Perfect mats every time! The card fronts in the paper collection have been thoughtfully designed to work hand in glove with the dies. How handy!
The beautiful corner flourishes are part of the die collection. I used my favorite Posy Patch stamps and die to add a little extra dimension to the card. You’ll find a complete supply list and detailed tutorial for making this 6″ x 6″ card below. Here are a few more photos.
Thanks for stopping by!
