Hello Friends -
There are two types of cards that everyone complains about needing to make, Sympathy cards and cards for men. Well, what about sympathy cards for men and boys?
I was asked to make four different sympathy cards which would be used for four members of the same family -- two teenagers, the daughter and wife of the gentleman that passed.
As long as I was doing one, I thought I would try to do a few of them in each style.
To make this first card I made two masks by cutting images from the Pagoda Cricut cartridge. The crane worked very well but the bamboo was a bit more of an issue. Because it wasn't a silhouette it wanted more detail than could be accomplished with this process.
I inked the bamboo in a couple of Distress Inks. The crane is also Distress Ink, Black Soot.
This is such a simple way to make a card but one that I often forget. Making the mask really couldn't be simpler. You can use scissors, an electronic cutting machine or a die cutter. Think of all the cool things you could make with a piece of transparency and a cutter.
What is your thought on these cards?
