Sympathy card drawn with a Chalk Marker pen on the Cricut Explore

I adapted this CUP cut file to draw the design on my Cricut Explore, as opposed to cutting it.  Love this effect!

I imported the SVG file into Design space, created a duplicate and used the contour feature to create a cut file of the outline, I then switched the original from cut, to write and used a Zig  dual tipped chalk pastel marker pen to draw the design.  I added in some tiny pearl cabochons and a sympathy sentiment die by  Gina Marie Designs.

This would look great done in a black pen  on white then colored with markers too.

I love the versatility of these over the edge card cut files.  This one I re-proportioned to create a square card, instead of the original rectangular card.

Here’s another CraftsUPrint and Gina Marie Designs combo card….

Nothing major in the way of supplies… just 110lb white card stock, a sheet of pink 65 lb Recollections card and some purple Darice Adhesive foam.  Zig 2 way glue, Zig Photo tape, a Martha Stewart corner punch and  of course the Gina Marie Sympathy Die and CraftsUPrint cut file. I threw it on my Cricut Explore and left it cutting while I did other things… came back.. popped it off  the cutting mat and glued on my layers.

“Gina Marie” Bows Die

“Gina Marie” Sympathy Sentiment Die

Quick and Easy Sympathy Card & Another Die Giveaway

Ok, this one came together quicker than expected, so here is my sketch No 4 card for our Monthly Sketch Challenge over on the message board and it includes the Extra Credit for making a sympathy card. Now this is a Gazillion miles outside of my comfort zone… It’s way softer and more feminine than my usual typical style.  But as a friend told me, sometimes it’s good to step  out of your comfort zone.. so here it is.

Dies used Gina Marie stitched rectangle and a Gina Marie sympathy sentiment.  The sentiment was cut on a silver glitter card stock, the stitched die is  cut on 110lb card and popped with a foam rectangle behind.

Lace around the center is just some adhesive lace from a Joann grab bag last year. The lace down the side is from Walmart.

The silver rose is from the Michaels bargain racks. The front panel was also foam popped and mounted on a Recollections card base.
