A friend of mine lost her father this week, and I wanted to make her a special card. I think the embossing from the Stylized Flower Cuttlebug Folder is so pretty, so I didn't want to cover up too much of it.
My tag is cut at 2.88" from the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More Cricut cartridge. The sentiment label is also from this cartridge, but I used my Gypsy to change the base size to 2.38" x .75" and the shadow to 2.55" x 0.96". I used the "hide contour" feature to remove the slits in both. My little swatches of paper behind the label were created with the swatch die from the Papertrey Ink Button Card die set.
For the inside, I used the Papertrey Ink "With Sympathy" stamp set for my sentiment and butterfly. This is a great set for sympathy cards - lots of phrases when you have a hard time finding the right words.
