A Simple Floral Sympathy

Welcome

I am sharing one of an order of four sympathy cards I had to make recently. I promise that I won't show them all at once.


This one started with a kraft base, and a layer of paper from the KaiserCraft Vintage Timeless pad.


The sentiment was stamped using Espresso Ink, and an ODBD stamp from the With Deepest Sympathy set onto a die cut label threaded through some gold spotted ribbon.


The butterfly is cut with the Pippi die by Memory Box, from a snippet of dull gold card.



I finished the inside with a strip of the patterned paper on one side,


And this verse from the ODBD With Heartfelt Sympathy set on the other side, again using the espresso ink.

All the edges of the card and paper were sponged with Delicata Golden Glitz Ink before assembling the card, and a few gold rhinestones added to finish.
