This week we’re asking you to make a sympathy card. As our hostess this month said, no one wants a reason to have to make one but we all will need one sooner or later. The theme also includes as an alternate theme is a card of encouragement for someone going through a tough time. So this is how I made this card. It’s another easy one! Yay!
Step !: Cut out the 2 die pcs. from Elizabeth Craft Designs called 1477 – Butterfly Aperture from white cardstock. Glue the overlay pc. to the silhouette pc. only at the body of the butterfly. Add 4 pearls down the body as shown.
Step 2: Cut a 6″ square from white cardstock and emboss with Spellbinders Decorative Applause embossing folder.
Step 3: Make a base card by cutting a 12 x 12″ pc. of white cardstock in half. Score one half at 6″ on the long side. Fold over for a tent fold card.
Step 4: Adhere the embossed 6″ square to the front of the card. Glue the butterfly onto the embossed layer again just at the body allowing the butterfly wings to lift off of the card.
Step 5: I used a die set that I have no idea who the manufacture is. I bought it yrs. ago from one of the shopping channels. It was inexpensive and came with a lot of dies. there is no manufactures name at all. You think they might be contraband? LOL
The XOXO at the bottom of the card is from Elizabeth Craft Designs: 1269 – Love SentimentsThat’s it!
Thanks so much for taking the time to look and I hope you’ll join the challenge!
