Butterflies, Handmade Cards, Sympathy

With Sympathy

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card which is something that we often need many of, but find it hard to make them at the time when they are required. So, I like to have a little stash of these put away for that very moment to send to a loved one when they most need it.

The Sympathy Card

Serene Silhouettes

The base card is So Saffron with a layer of Whisper White which has been stamped with the Serene Silhouette stamp set using the masking technique. This means that I have used a large post it note and put it across the card about 2 inches from the top. Stamp the images in multiple colours, stamping over the top of the post it note so it gives that nice white border in the centre of the card. Peel the post it note off, turn it upside down and put it down another 1.5 inches so it will create that white centre. Repeat the stamping on the bottom section of the card.

I often make a few of these and with this style of card, you can add any type of sentiment to the white section as required.

Serene Silhouettes

I added a butterfly stamped with Papillon Potpourri and punched with the Bitty Butterfly punch.

Be sure to decorate the inside panel of your card and even the envelope!
