I needed to make a quick Sympathy card (is there such a thing?) for a friend who recently lost her dog. The loss of a pet is such a difficult thing.
Whenever I need an elegant card that I can put together quickly, I always turn to my Big Shot and framelits. I decided to go with a neutral color palette of Pool Party and White, since I knew Pool Party was her favorite color.
For this card, I used a half sheet (5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ of Thick Whisper White cardstock, and then layered a mat of the same cardstock (4″ x 5-1/4″) that I had run through the Fluttering Embossing folder.
I cut out the butterfly using Pool Party cardstock and the Butterflies thinlits.
The sentiment was from the Rose Wonder bundle, which I stamped in basic black, onto the frame from the same set. Using the framelits, I cut out the banners. I used some retired Pool Party ribbon and then mounted everything together on the card.
To finish, I added a few Rhinestone jewels and the card was done.
A very clean and simple card, made with love. Now to get it into the mail. Off I go!
