Sympathy Card

Butterfly Collections seem to be taking over the crafting world at the moment and for this sympathy card I've CASE'd a card  made by Stacey Marsh which I spotted recently on You Tube.  Hers was smaller and was a Birthday one but I followed the basic idea using stamps and dies which I have in my stash.  I'm trying really hard to resist buying any of the latest butterfly stamps and dies which are fluttering around although I must admit that some designer paper is winging its way to me shortly.

I started by heat embossing the cream texture and 'splodges' onto some grey card before blending using two shades of blue ink.  This was layered onto black and I added a die cut butterfly and a sentiment stamped and heat embossed.

Brick Texture - stamp from a free set designed by Phill Martin
Splodges - stamp from French Foliage stamp set Stampin' Up (retired)
Butterfly - dies from Sizzix
Sentiment - freebie stamp on die cut label from Art Gallery dies Stampin' Up
