The card stock is K&Company Designer Paper Black & Ivory Fusion
You have to be carefull lining up the sentiment on the inside, so you don't see it from the outside of the card--and remember to only tape 1/2 of the front sentiment.
My friend, Shelly and I, decided to slow on the soldier cards, for just the moment, and build a supply of cards we may need for misc needs in our personal lives.
So here is a Z fold sympathy card I came up with.
And I hope these instructions make since.
Recipe for Sympathy Card (Z Fold):
Front: With Sympathy
Printed on Microsoft Word
Font:BixAntiqueScriptHmkBold (also with Bold turned on.)
Inside: Death leaves a heartache
Only God can heal;
Love leaves memories
No one can steal.
Font:BixAntiqueScriptHmk (with Bold turned one.)
Cut card base from 8 ½ x 11 card stock (can make 2 cards)
**Cut size 11 x 4 ¼
*Cut 2 mats (from pattern paper) (front & left inside)
2 ½ x 4
*Cut 1 mat (from pattern paper) (right inside)
5 ¼ x 4
Score card base @ 2 ¾ and 5 ½
With Stretch your Imagination Cricut Cartridge
Cut Shadow on page 78 (5.7)
**2 black (card base color) @ 3 ¼
*2 pattern paper @ 3
2 around sentiment (using center on Cricut Expression) @ 2 ¾
(I always cut a plain one and check the placement and centering
of the sentiment – luckily this cartridge has a frame the same size
make it easy to check the placement.)
I used ink to shadow all edges. I did not use any pop dots—since it
Will most likely be mailed.
