Sympathy Card Using New CTMH Flirty Paper Packet

Hello from Southern CA!! I hope everyone is staying cool in this hot summer heat.  I actually had time to create a couple cards yesterday.  I created one sympathy card with our new CTMH Flirty paper packet available August 1st in our new Autumn/Winter Idea Book!!  I love these colors!! They are bright and bold; which is my style.  I used Mojo Monday 251 Sketch for this card. 

I also used two of my favorite stamp sets. I used CTMH "4 My Friend" for the outside sentiment and CTMH "Card Chatter - Sympathy" for the inside sentiment. 


Inside of card 




Supplies I used for this card:

Base of card - 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
Circle and Scalloped Circle - Cricut Art Philosophy Collection

Paper/Card stock - CTMH Flirty Paper Packet (X7160B) Available August 1, 2012

Bling - want2scrap.com - Pearls LeCreme

    1. Hi Heather!! I love your blog!! Thanks for the compliment and for becoming a follower. I just followed you as well. I would love the pictures of the Avonlea card kit; but I figured they must be your own that you took. I hope they come out with a flyer or at least some artwork for that one. I have seen other consultants who used the scraps and got 18 more smaller cards. Isn't that awesome!! Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a fabulous weekend!! Hugs, Gloria

  30. Though the sentiment makes me a bit sad, I know those cards are also needed. I love the colors in the card and it's not that heavy, so the sentiment really pops out.

    Thanks so much for sharing your art with us on WAW.
