Springtime Impressions and Botanical Butterfly

That Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper from Sale-a-Bration is some of the prettiest paper ever!  I am a sucker for black and white and one side of this paper is all black and white!  Today I have a sympathy card for you.  It's part of my sympathy card class I'm having this week.

Springtime Impressions Sympathy by Jo Anne Hewins

I do feel that you could change the sentiment on this card and it would work for any occasion.  I think it could even be a wedding card!

Start with a card base of Basic Black that measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and fold at 4 1/4. 

The black and white butterfly paper is cut at 2 x 5 1/2.  Add to the left of the card.  Now run a piece of Basic Black that is cut at 2 1/4 x 5 1/2 through the Big Shot with the Quilt Top Embossing Folder.  Add to the right of the card. 

Run a length of the Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon around the card.  Tape this to the card behind where the sentiment will go.  Tie a knot and add to the card with a glue dot.

The words are from the stamp set Flourishing Phrases.  Stamp in Memento Black on Whisper White cardstock.  Cut this out with the Stitched Labels Framelits.  Adhere with dimensionals.

Cut the butterfly from the Springtime Impressions Thinlits using our Silver Foil Sheets.  Add glue down the body of the butterfly and add to the card.  Finish off the front with a few well placed rhinestones.

Springtime Impressions Sympathy Inside by Jo Anne Hewins

The inside of the card has a saying from Flourishing Phrases.  Add a butterfly in the lower right corner.  Use the Butterfly Gala stamp set.  Mask the top butterfly with tape.  Ink in Memento.  Take off the tape and stamp.  Add the body and antennae.

I would say that this is a simple and pretty quick card.
