My Time to Craft DT Challenge #291 Sympathy

Good morning!

Our theme at My Time to Craft is 'Sympathy.' These are such difficult cards to make!


I kept the design very simple. The butterfly is from the Painted Butterflies stamp set by altenew. The stamps are designed to be layered to build up the image. I used Ranger Dye Ink in Caribbean Coast for the base, Blue Ribbon for the pattern, and finally Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Navy for the outline.

The sentiment is from the Clearly Besotted Butterfly Wishes set, heat embossed in silver.

Go and see what my teamies have done, their work is so beautiful. And do join in - it's a lot easier to make a Sympathy card before you need it!

Have a good weekend, and thanks for looking!

love Mags B x
