When it comes to sympathy cards, I think simple is best. A simple design and a simple sentiment sometimes say more. I used the "Painted Glass" stamp set for these beautiful butterflies and a sentiment from "Rooted in Nature."
I started with a 3-3/4" by 5" Whisper White Card Stock panel. I used the Stamparatus to stamp a sentiment from the "Rooted in Nature" stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto the center of the panel. I set this aside to dry.
Next, I stamped three butterflies from the "Painted Glass" stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White Card Stock. I colored them with Pineapple Punch, Mint Macaron, and Bermuda Bay Stampin' Write Markers. I cut them out with the matching Stained Glass Thinlit Die.
I adhered the stamped panel to a 3-7/8" by 5-1/8" Basic Black Card Stock Panel and then onto a Thick Whisper White Card Stock card base. Finally, I adhered the butterflies to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals and placed a large Rhinestone Basic Jewel between each of them.
Such a pretty card to show someone you are thinking of them in their sorrow.
