Two CAS sympathy cards for CAS(E) this sketch #132

When I saw sketch #132 by N@Ali over at CAS(E) this sketch several ideas popped into my head. One was to use a die cut in the corner. It became a sympathy card because I think the negative die cut is a good symbol for the loss. Not always but very often I keep my sympathy cards very clean and simple. Look...

And then, of course, I couldn't throw out the piece I cut out and made this...

CAS(E) this sketch #132






So sorry but the photos from our last week in California will have to wait until next time. My computer is very slow tonight and it has gotten too late.

Thanks for your visit!

Hugs,

Two lovely cards...simple and classy. I need to remember that die cuts offer two opportunities; perhaps more 'strategy beforehand' required when I create them!
