It is never a joy when one must deal with the loss of a loved one and recently, I had to prepare two sympathy cards. I wanted cards that could be quickly prepared and opted to use the same design for both cards. When going through my stamp collection to find an appropriate stamp, I settled upon the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Basics set and Butterflies Thinlits Die from the new Occasions Catalog. Personally, I like to think of butterflies as a symbol that a loved one is near so I was drawn to the set. Subtle colors were used but Dazzling Details and three small pearls were added to the butterfly to add a bit of shimmer and shine. The Dazzling Details is very subtle and isn’t as evident in the photograph as it is when viewing in person but it adds a finishing touch with the proper amount of shimmer. A second layer of the butterfly was cut from vellum card stock to add more dimension and the sentiment, from Love & Sympathy stamp set, was embossed with gold.
