Hello Stampers! As much as we hate to think about making Sympathy cards – they are a necessity. I have two Sympathy cards to share with you. I’ll show you a quick but oh, so tasteful card today and another one in my next post. I was inspired by Alene Humphrey for this card. I always like to give credit where due.
This is done with a Whisper White base card, another Whisper White popped up piece, a Black layer, and a Whisper White piece that has been dry embossed with the Floral Affection Embossing Folder.
The little butterflies were punched out of Silver Glitter Paper using the Bitty Butterfly Punch and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals . The sentiment came from the stamp set Better Together.
The inside sentiment was from the same stamp set, Better Together, and that beautiful butterfly was from the die in Bold Butterfly Thinlits in Silver Glitter paper again.
Whisper White – Base card 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ folded at 4 1/4″; 4″ x 5 1/4″; 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″
Black – 3 3/4″ x 5″

I always think of butterflies when I think of sympathy cards because here in San Diego one of our Hospice groups does a butterfly release each year to represent those loved ones who have passed. Both my father and mother in law were cared for by those fantastic nurses.
I do hope you enjoyed seeing this card. I just realized that both Bitty Butterfly Punch and Floral Affection Embossing Folder have retired on May 31. If you would like either…contact me and I will see if I can get them for you from other demos in our group. I have had 100% success so far. These transition periods always catch me because I really like some that have retired and hate to part with them. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Be back soon…until then…Happy Stamping!
