|Posted: 5/15/2009 8:01:18 AM|Welcome to another A Year in Cards class! This month, we're making sympathy cards--some of the hardest to make. Hopefully you can create a couple to have on hand. Sometimes I think having sympathy cards on hand is a sort of insurance policy. If you have them, you won't need them. Wouldn't that be great?
Anyhow, you can see the video of the cards for this month here, as well as download the PDF of instructions and photos. And don't forget your homework! Create a card based on this class and upload it to the TwoPeas gallery. Just select this class when you upload and you'll be automatically entered into a drawing to win a TwoPeas gift certificate. Pretty sweet!
You have until June 14th at 11:59 pm CT to upload your cards to the gallery.

Beautiful water coloring effect with that flower stamp. Love the butterfly with the wood grain stamp also... great work again Kristina!

|Posted: 5/16/2009 1:42:59 PM|Unfortunately, I need a sympathy card for a 19yr old boy, my friend's son. We live in Florida and his friends held a memorial on the beach (in addition to the celebration of life service at church). Remind your teens to wear their seat belts!
The die cut challenges going on this month gave me the idea for the palm tree die cut and Kristina's punched cork a few weeks ago inspired the trunk.

Thanks for the great cards! I'm really enjoying doing each months themes. I do have a question. I noticed that many of the cards are not the standard "invitation size" card. Where do you find envelopes for the unique sizes (ie. 5x5)? If you make them yourself is there some kind of template or something that helps? Does 2Peas have these items??

Kristina, these are really pretty cards! Thanks so much for doing these classes every month. I don't have any sympathy cards made at all. And you're right, when I need one I certainly don't feel very creative. I'll be creating some for my stash.
|Posted: 5/24/2009 1:26:22 AM|The cards are beautiful in their simplicity ...I've never thought of using my die cuts for this technique but I'm surly going to try it now.
Thank you for the ideas.

|Posted: 6/4/2009 12:48:38 PM|I have been looking at the Year in Cards challenges without having participated yet. I make cards all the time, I just have yet to make one for the challenge.
I was compelled to participate this time, though. Here is my card for the challenge.

|Posted: 6/7/2009 12:19:46 AM|Wow! Life has been unbelievably crazy and I've missed a few months, but today I had time to get the May cards finished. I completely copied almost everything, including your handwriting Kristina! Have to do what you can do when your brain is drained, right?
I do have a question... I colored my flower with Copic markers and I used StayzOn ink for the black outline. The black smeared a bit and my guess is that it's because Copics are alcohol based. Should I just use a regular dye based ink when using Copics?
Again, thanks for this class! It's a great addition to everything I'm learning from your blog!

MrsD, I'm not really sure about the inks. I just color it in super super carefully. Maybe someone else out there knows more about Copics. Anyone?

I finally got my card finished also. I love this class; but It always takes me a while to get it finished. I don't know why.

Sorry Card 1
Sorry Card 2
Sorry Card 3
I have not had much time this past month with a new baby!
But I want to keep up with this card making, as it is a great idea to have cards around, no matter what the occasion.
Thanks for the great class Kristina!

Hi! I just wanted to thank you! I've accumulated enormous amounts of scrapbookind supplies in the last year, and havent done a thing with them, until today. I needed to give my best friend her baby shower gift, and decided to be brave and make a card to go with it. The result is now in my gallery, but I wanted to thank you for being such an inspiration. Im subscribed to your blog and to your youtube page for updates, and absolutely love your cards. Id be so excited if you could tell me what you think of my very first card! According to my husband, is perfect, but I think its a bit plain.. made with lots of love, but plain! Anyway, thank you very much, and I look forward to watching many more cards!!!! Take care!!!!!
