Sympathy

It is never really a good time when you have to make a sympathy card. We found out our neighbour lost her mother a few days ago so I wanted to make her a card. I seem to pull out the Butterfly Corner embossing folder a lot for my sympathy cards. I love the detail on it and of course I love the butterflies. I bought mine at my local craft store you can find it online at Darice amongst other places . It was one of the first cards I made when I got into card making.  Here is my original card if you want to take a look :) I have made many other cards using this embossing folder it is so versatile here is another example. You can pretty much do anything you want with it. 

I used two different Unity stamps in this  card the sentiment is from the Sympathy and Sadness stamp you can find it at Unity Stamp Company website here. The butterflies are from the A Friend Loveth stamp set you can find that here.  I embossed some lilac card with the folder then mounted it onto a white cardstock base. I stamped the butterflies onto vellum using Versamark ink then added white embossing powder and set with my heat gun. I cut them out added some white pearls and used a fabric glue that dies in clear to stick them onto the card. I used the same white embossing powder on the sentiment to make it stand out.

         
  Hope you like my card thanks for stopping by :)
