In Sympathy

I never used to make sympathy cards but here I am making another one just a few month after the last.

This one was very quick and easy to make as I used my new Heidi Swapp Minc foil applicator.  I just designed the topper on my computer, printed it with a laser printer onto card and then put it through the machine using silver foil.

I then cut it out and mounted it onto black card.  On the black card I made a cross with black seam binding but it does not show in the photo but wanted the subtleness of black on black.  I then mounted onto white card and rounded the edges.  

I am really pleased with the way it came out and think that the machine is well worth the money - and not too expensive which is even better.  I can see that I will be using this machine a lot to create foiled toppers.
