Sympathy Card

Hello, everyone.  I have made another sympathy card for my Mom's stash.


I followed this sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches:



I was also inspired by Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge, which is Butterflies plus I for Inks. I inked all around the edges of the kraft cardstock with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. I'm also joining the Snippet Playground and Hiding in My Craft Room (HIMCR) Super Scraps Saturday as I used snippets/scraps for the die-cuts and the patterned paper.

Other products used:

  • Dies: Butterfly (Gina Marie Designs Small Butterfly), Leaves (Memory Box Flutter Vine)
  • Patterned Paper:  Creative Memories
  • Stamp:  Sentiment (Whimsy Stamps Everyday Moments)
  • Twine:  American Crafts


Challenges:

Beautiful Kitty and so fit for purpose. Your mum is going to like her supply of cards you are making for her. I love the soft muted colours with the splash of green plant and of course the butterfly. Thankyou for fluttering by #46. Hugs Mrs A.

This is gorgeous Kitty. They are hard cards to make and I try to keep away from making them but they have to be done.

Gorgeous card Kitty, every thing just flows together and is so peaceful. I think you should make several of this card for your mom's stash, I find it calming and peaceful.

Hi my friend!! How are you? Very lovely sympathy card!! It looks paceful and light, and the fabulous intricate butterfly matches very well with the patterned paper and the pretty leaves!! Your distressing on the edges makes the card's look so soft! I think this is perfect for your mother's stash, because isn't too cheerful and don't feel too blue. An ancient latin quote said " virtue stays in between" :D Well done!!

This is a lovely card, I love the natural feel to it. Somehow I was thinking that the butterfly had to be inked for Mrs. A's challenge... inking the paper didn't dawn on me! Oh!
