Week 271: SORRY

 

If there's one card type that always seems to be a little tough to design, would you agree it's sympathy cards?  This week, we're going to help inspire each other with a gallery full of ideas, whether it be condolences or something else that comes to mind when seeing the cue word!

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)


STAMPlorations is returning as our wonderful sponsor and is offering this challenge's winner a $15 gift certificate to the online store!  Remember, during the weeks STAMPlorations is sponsoring us, you can refresh your craft stash with the help of the 10% off discount code, CASOLOGY!
