Sympathy Cross

One of those cards that you never want to make but it is important that you do make one to let someone know you are thinking of them.

I’m starting this one with a close up picture of the Spellbinders Cross Die, it doesn’t just have to be sympathy that is is used for, it can be used for loads of different occasions.

I started the cross in a cream card and edged it with some suede coloured ink, I then used twine from Ribbon Carousel bound around the center of the cross I then stamped a spare piece of cream card with a script font stamp then cut one the smaller crosses and distressed it before adding on top with foam pads.

Of course with this type of card the inside sentiment is always of importance so my favourite sentiment was used.

Again using the twine to tie on the smallest of the crosses from the die set.
