Sympathy Card for Wanda's Family

Designed by Jeannie Phillips - Southside, AL
Click on any picture to enlarge.
This is one of the hardest cards I have made... it has extra pages on the inside for me and the ladies in my card class to sign...we are all going to miss Wanda so much ... she is responsible for bringing us together and we all have so much fun and have become such good friends... she was the heart of our group and will be missed, loved and remembered forever!  Thank you so much for looking... Hugs, Jeannie

All three rectangles cut @ w 3.50 x h 4.75 you will have to unlink the width and height but I didn't use real dial size...using the Cricut I would cut these at w 3.27 x h 4.75 with a paper trimmer and I would cut the ovals inside with a oval cutter.
Large Oval (top piece on card) cut @ 3 3.27 x h 4.43.
Medium Oval (center piece on card) cut @ w 2.95 x h 4.0.
Small Oval (back piece on card) cut @ w 2.64 x h 3.57.
*Do not weld the circles to the ovals...or you won't have the hole in the center.*
I popped each of these...the first one from the background, the second from the first and the third from the second... ivy is placed on each layer before popping.
Easter 2010
Large Cross and its Shadow cut @ w 2.22 x h 2.89.... on the Cricut  I would cut these at 2 3/4 inches.
Small Cross (shadow cuts) cut @ w 1.07 x h 1.31 inches... on the Cricut I would cut these @ 1 1/4 inches.
Paper Doll Dress Up
Ivy (this cut is on the shift..using the right key on the second row of option keys) cut @ w 2.96 x h 2.40.... I trimmed these apart in places to make them curve around the ovals....they are placed one each layer of the frame.

This card is made with love and it shows. May your heart carry her always. I have rooms in my heart and they each have a person in them. I am sure that Wanda has a special place in your heart too.

I am so sorry about your friend, it sounds like you have a close knit group and that she was an asset to it. The card was beautiful and I am sure she would have loved it.
