One of the hardest cards to do. Not just because it's so sad and deeply personal but I think you have to know the person well to be able to get the card Just Right.
I used for this card An A 4 piece of cardstock folded in half then trimmed to  21 centimetres or about 8 inches. I cut a strip of bazzil lilac card about  3 centimetres or an inch and a half wide and ran it through the cuttlebug swirls folder, I had to turn over the card and do the other side as the folder wasn't long enough then glued this to the side of the card.  Now this left me with a slight line however......When I cut out the cross and shadow cross at 5 inches which can be found on the WEDDING CRICUT CARTRIDGE. I glued these together and then ran when dry ran the completed  cross  in the swirls folder through the cuttlebug.. I then placed the cross  so that it was hiding the faint line that the folder had made And took two ribbons one lilac one white the lilac one was wider so this went to the bottom the white ribon on the top tied around the card and secured at the back with a small strip of thin double sided tape making sure both ribbons covered the tape. I added a peel off sticker to the outside in silver and one on the inside and that was it The sentiment is a peel of sticker as Jasmine's Deepest Sympathy didn't seem to sit right on the top......I think that was me on the day with being impatient more than anything else. A few words inside the card and there one Sympathy card. Hope you like it.
