Cuttlebug: Jules Jewells - With Heartfelt Sympathy


Hello and 'Happy Monday' - thanks for dropping in :-)

I started a Sympathy card the other day to play the Splitcoaststampers Clean & Simple CAS61 Challenge #61 of "Sentiments" - the only stamping being allowed on our card was a sentiment or a verse - but I ran out of time because I had so many birthday cards which HAD to be done, so finished my Sympathy card a few days ago.  I made it to have on hand because I rarely feel like making one when I need to.

Not a whole lot to explain really - it is a very simple one-layer card.  The dry embossing is my new Cuttlebug folder: Jules Jewells which I really love & I think could be used for almost any occasion.  The postman brought me my new Stampin' Up corner punch which I used on all the corners.  AT LAST I have a corner punch that cuts cleanly AND easily - it is top quality and wish I had bought one a year ago & not put up with daggy edges that my old 'home brand' one frustratingly made all the time.

The sentiment panel was popped up on 1mm mounts (dimensionals).   I punched 2 small hearts and glued them to the sentiment panel and added some very fine .008 white glitter to them just to add a little something "extra" that wasn't over-the-top.

The ribbon was made in 2 separate elements and the bow itself was made with my Bow Easy.  I attached the bow with a glue dot.

Thanks again for visiting and your comments always make my day!
