Papertrey's July 2011 Blog Hop

I made a little tissue box card today.

I've wanted to make one like this for awhile.

I cut the "tissue box" with an oval cutter and then put an acetate square behind the hole. 

Then I cut an "X" with a craft knife and pushed some tissue through.

Thinking tissue would be too cutesy for a sympathy card,

I thought a good book....the type that makes you cry... would be fun.;)

I am making this post short so you can hop along.....

Here is the inspiration photo:
