Sympathy Card

Unfortunately, a co-worker lost her brother recently, so I was asked to make a card to add to a gift we are sending her. I have been watching Christina Griffith's YouTube videos and she has done such beautiful work with layered cards using a new Spellbinder's die for a lattice effect.

Since I don't have this die, I searched my Cricut cartridge books and found an Arglye pattern I re-sized to fit inside an oval Spellbinder frame.

I popped up that black frame on some foam dimensionals over top gray paper stamped with Ranger's Iced Spruce Distress ink and Inkadinkadoo floral stamps.

That layer was placed on embossed white cardstock which was matted with black and gray sheets and inked on the edges.

The ribbon was stamped with the sentiment using Stazon ink and a white double-bow added with Glossy Accents.

The flowers and Martha Stewart fern punched leaves were also adhered with Glossy Accents.

A better view showing the lattice raised up above the stamped background.
Christina has such nice videos; I really love trying new ideas and like the effect this one gives to a card. 


  1. An elegant card, I'll have to check out the YouTube videos thanks.

    1. Thank you! Oh yes, I would highly recommend her tutorials - there are a lot to watch!


Thank you so much for taking the time to let me know you were by. I appreciate and read with delight each and every comment!
