It’s been a sad week for my family, we are all still feeling the pain from my brother’s accident and his girlfriends death. I wanted to make a couple of sympathy cards to send to various family members.
Every once in awhile I stumble across a blog where I LOVE every project on it and that’s how I feel about this site I found a couple of days ago, check out Im in Haven to see what I mean. I’m CASEing this card, my isn’t as cute as hers but you get the idea. I’m definitely going to get this PTI die – it just makes the card!
I made the sentiment – feel free to grab it if you like it. I have two versions with a background and one with just the sentiment.
I diecut out the flowers using a Spellbinder die and then diecut it again with different colors of cardstock and inserted them into the opening. I drew a straight line to emulate stems. I punched the butterfly using two different Martha Stewart punches. Rhinestones were added to complete the card.
My second card was made using distress inks to stamp the background, if you like the look of this card there are lots of examples on the Splitcoast Stamper site where I got the idea. I added a PTI flourish stamp and Stampin Up sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by!
