I needed to make a sympathy card this evening, and I decided to try my brand new (just received today) Sizzix "Lattice" die. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do, but the die leaves a lot of little marquise-shaped cuts that are perfect for creating a stained glass look! I don't know that this is a perfect sympathy card, but I love it! The sentiment that I used inside the card may not have been exactly perfect, either, but I kept coming back to it and hope that it will be of comfort to the one who receives it. The sentiment reads, "The will of God will never lead you where the grace of God cannot keep you." For this card, I used Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, and Bermuda Bay card stock. If you click on the photo of the card, a larger image will open where you can see more of the detail (and mistakes, too).

Love it, love it, love it. I saw another one like this somewhere but like yours better. I think this is an excellent card to do in class, but they'd all have to have several sheets to run throught the lattice. Beautiful!!

This is another impressive card. I particularly like the colors, they really lend themselves to stained glass colors. I especially like the sentiment too.
