Hello! I have such a hard time making sympathy cards. I try to tailor the color scheme or theme to the individual. This individual was very dear to me. Helen was my SIL's mother. My SIL is like a little sister to me and I just loved her mom! I was so sad to learn that Helen's health was declining.
Helen's favorite color was orange. She loved flowers and animals. I made two cards, one for her husband and the other for Amie (SIL).
I am sharing these swing cards today at the BugBytes. I just love these cards from CTMH Artiste cartridge.
I have a file in my Gypsy titled cards.artiste and I have all the cards saved with coordinating shapes.
I put two of each card (sized to 5 inches) on a page so that an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock will cut both.
I used kraft cardstock for these cards.
I used this butterfly from Hannah Montana sized to 1.16 inches for one of the cards.
The circles came from Artiste and are sized to 3.51 inches. I hid the scallops on two of them.
The flower shape is from Mother's Day Bouquet and sized from 1 - 1.82 inches.
I used cardstock papers to cut out the pieces. I used my McGill stylus to round up the flower petals.
I added some crystals to the butterfly and outside of this card. I also added a strip of orange patterned cardstock to the inside edge.
I stamped an orange scalloped circle with Sympathy from Pink By Design stamps
I adhered the scallop edge from the orange circle to the yellow circle and added the butterfly layers.
On the second card, I used washi tape to make leaves and adhered the flower on. I added a crystal to the center of the flower.
Again, I stamped the sentiment on the inside. I added some washi tape to the inside of this card.
Here is a close up of the flower.
I have many fond memories of laughing with Helen! I am so glad she was in my life :)
I hope you have a wonderful day!!
