Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance Sympathy Card


This. Card. 
I love this card. 
I don't want to have to use this card. 
It's important to have sympathy cards on hand, but I don't want to have to use it because I don't want any of my people to be sad.  
I especially don't want to lose any of my people. 
However, I am glad to have it ready, and I am thrilled it is so beautiful! 

  1. Cut Basic White card base to 8-1/2"x5-1/2", score at 4-1/4"
  2. Cut Basic White card front to 4"x5-1/4"
  3. Stamp the butterflies (Super easy with the stamparatus) on a piece of Basic White Cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black.  If using the stamparatus, you might want to stamp it twice so it's nice and dark. 
  4. Using Blending Brushes with Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Bermuda Bay - add some color the the card front. 
  5. Stamp the sentiment on a piece of Basic White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black.  
  6. Use the Layering Circle Dies to cut around your sentiment.  And cut a Bermuda Bay circle to layer behind the sentiment. 
  7. Using Blends (Daffodil Delight - Light & Dark, Bermuda Bay - Light and Pumpkin Pie - Light) color the butterflies.  Then, use the large Brilliant Wings Die to cut them all out at once. 
  8. Use Stampin' Seal or Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach the larger butterflies to the card front. 
  9. Wrap the white twine around the card front and tie a bow
  10. The right wing of the smaller blue butterfly is tucked under the twine and attached with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The left wing (same butterfly) is attached with a Stampin' Dimensional.  
  11. Using Stampin' Dimensionals, attach the sentiment to the card front, over the twine.  
  12. Then, attach the left wing of the smallest butterfly to the sentiment circle with Liquid Glue and the right wing to the card front with a Dimensional.
  13. Attach the card front to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.  
  14. Finish with Basic Pearls scattered on the card.  

For the inside of the card, I chose to add another sentiment.  Then, I added a splash of color using a Blending Brush and Bermuda Bay Stampin' Pad. 

I hope you like this card as much as I do.  If you decide to make it, I hope it is for something happy like a birthday or new baby!  (Change the sentiments, of course! 😉)
Happy Stamping!
