Loving Memories

I needed another sympathy card this week.  Too many of them going out lately!  Using the color combination from Color My Heart and the sketch from Retro Sketches, I came up with this:

All supplies are CTMH.  Here's the list:
  • Stamps: Bodacious Banners, Big Hug Occasions
  • Ink: Canary (pigment), Slate (dye)
  • Paper: Slate cardstock
  • Accessories: Slate Twisty Ties, vellum butterfly cut with Artiste Cricut Cartridge (p. 58)
I adhered the butterfly with Liquid Glass and was surprised that there wasn't any of that weird this-is-where-I-glued show through. 

There's something about butterflies that speaks of new life, of change, of beauty from ashes.

Until next time,


  1. Love the card, Becca. You know, I hadn't thought of the butterfly image that way but you are so right! Metamorphosis - transition to our heavenly state of being. I will hang onto that one!

  2. Beautiful card….as always! I think I better try that Liquid Glass trick for adhesion! Maybe I wouldn't have glue messes to fix! hahaha

  3. No one likes making sympathy cards, but this is a lovely one and I'm sure it will mean a lot to the recipient. Thanks for sharing on the Color Dare this week.

  4. Beautiful card! I love the vellum butterfly and how you used the twist tie. Thank you for inspiring us at Color My Heart Challenge Blog.

  5. Eeeeeek! I love that twist on this one! show through? Excellent information! Such a beautiful card for such a hard occasion.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. You bless me!
