SFYTT Sympathy Card CTMH Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida
I decided to give my mom a second option for her sympathy card. Unfortunately, she needs it now as her friend's dear daughter has passed away.
I used Jen's SFYTT sketch this time. It certainly makes things go quicker when you have a sketch, although most of the time I like to play around with my supplies. Lately, though, I've been on a mission to use up some supplies as well as post more often, so I've found the sketches are often a nice jumping-off point.
CTMH's wonderful Veranda paper packet includes all of these paper patterns. What appears to be cocoa cardstock (for the mats) is actually the reverse side of the paper upon which the image is stamped.
Now. I left my cuttlebug and folders at my friend Amelia's house a couple of weeks ago. Which is why I have not used any of my loving Spellbinders dies lately. Expect that to be remedied soon! The reason I bring this up is to tell you my little trick for the sentiment panel. Without my Spellbinders dies, I was at a loss for what to do. So I pulled out a sentiment panel that is part of the Queen Bee kit, flipped it over and used the outer edge as a template on my Veranda paper! Cut it out, then taped it to the cocoa side and trimmed out a little mat that way. I thought the Verve sentiment might be comforting, and the CTMH flower and charm finish it off simply.
