With Sympathy/Butterfly

Unfortunately one can never have too many Sympathy cards on hand.  I love this one because it is really beautiful and it is fairly easy to put together.

I used the stamp sets Beautiful Wings (SS-0353) and Bird Melody (SS-0496).  (Bird Melody also has matching dies or you can buy as a bundle and save some $ for other treasure for your stamping stash).

With Sympathy Butterfly
I love these stamp sets. 

I used Whip Cream cardstock (CS-0040) for my card front cut at 3 3/4″ x 5 1/2″.  Beautiful Wings uses three set stamping.  I stamped on of the images in Summer Days ink (IP-0042), the other in Citrus Cooler ink (IP-0048) and then the outline butterfly in Black Licorice ink (IP-0041).  The sentiment came from the Bird Melody stamp set and was stamped using Black Licorice ink.

I used Foam Squares (AD-0085) to adhere the Whip Cream card front to a Summer Days (CS-0033) card base that was 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″.

I stamped an extra butterfly on a scrap piece of Whip Cream cardstock and cut it out using Detail Pro Shears (TO-0063).    Then I used my Crease Tool (TO-0040) to shape the wings of the butterfly to really “bring paper to life”.    I adhered some Black Twine (AC-0004) to the back of the butterfly using foam squares and then attached it to the card front.

To finish off the card I added some of the Sparkle Silk (IP-0126).

May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

Happy Crafting!!
