Blue Butterfly Sympathy

Hello friends!  I'm back with another card that was passed up for publication a while back.  Actually, I suppose it was meant to be, because I wound up sending this to a good friend of ours who just lost his father.


This beautiful blue butterfly is from the Lost Coast Designs set, Butterflies.


I used a Labels Eighteen die to cut an opening in the stamped-script panel (Hero Arts Manuscript Background). On the opposite side of the die cut, I stamped the sentiment and set it aside.  After popping up the script panel, I laid the sentiment piece inside and secured to the card base.


I'm so glad you dropped by today!



Stamps: Butterflies - Lost Coast Designs; sentiment - All Year Greetings - Fiskars; Manuscript Background - Hero Arts; flowers - Nature's Wonders - Practicing Creativity Paper: white - PTI; Crumb Cake - SU Ink: Crumb Cake - SU; Memento Tuxedo Black - Tsukineko Fibers: twine - Creative Impressions Accessories & Tools: Labels Eighteen die - Spellbinders; pearls - Queen & Co.; Copic markers
