Cricut Classically Modern Cards - With Sympathy

Here is the first card that I have cut from my new Cricut Classically Modern Cards Cartridge.

As I was going through the handbook this card jumped out at me.   

I went through my Close To My Heart cardstock looking for colours that were a little more subdued since this is a sympathy card - 
usually I am drawn to pastel or jewel tones.   


I used CTMH Ruby Cardstock for the base of the card.
I cut the inner liner from CTMH Goldrush and mounted it to the inside back portion. 

You could also put it on the inside front but 
I like being able to look through the intricate design. 

The leaves were cut from CTMH Olive Cardstock.
The sentiment was cut from CTMH Goldrush and CTMH Outdoor Denim Cardstock.


I sponged the cuts with the same colours of ink to give the pieces a little definition, 
then added a piece of Gold glitter cardstock to the flower from my scraps.

I added a piece of Recollections Burlap ribbon and used 
CTMH Foam Tape to pop the sentiment up from the front of the card.
