Well, unfortunately I'm back today with yet another sympathy card. .... and even more unfortunate, is that it is for the same person. After losing her older sister just three week's prior, a dear friend has now lost her father. Absolutely devastating for her mother and the remaining family. This is what I came up with for my friend.
Using the Poppy Stamps Clara Corner die, I die cut and embossed two of the corners out of white cardstock. I inked one of the corner pieces with Memento London Fog ink. They were placed kitty corner to one another on a black cardstock square, popping up the center flower with a foam square, for a little dimension.
The sentiment (from Sympathy Set 579) was stamped in the top left corner with Versamark and then heat embossed with White Detail. The butterfly was die cut using the Memory Box Lunette Butterfly die from white cardstock. I applied Versamark to the antenna and heat embossed with Belgian Cream. The butterfly body was applied with Versamark and then heat embossed with Black Detail. More Versamark was applied and then I heat embossed from underneath the piece with Magic Speckle to give the mosaic look.
A piece of sheer, white ribbon was attached to the left hand side, before being layered to the white card base and the butterfly was added to the bottom corner with a foam square for more dimension. I decided to leave the card just like that, simple and clean.
I also made a card using the same Corner die, for my friend's mother. I used silver butterfly stickers for this one, and the sentiment is from the same Sympathy Set 579.
Enjoy the beginning of summer,
