A Sympathy Card

Recently the husband of a very very special aunt died.
They had been married for 62+ years.
I wanted to do something extra special for my
dear Aunt Donna.

Rust and cream are the colors.
I used a scrapbook paper under the stamped phrase.
The frame was created with two Spellbinders dies
used at the same time and then embossed.
Rusty Hinge Distressed Ink was used
to sponge the outer and inner edges of the frame.

The Cheery Lynn butterflies are cut from
card stock that has been stippled with
Lumiere paint.
I brushed it on first and then quickly stipple dabbed
more of the same color on to remove the brush strokes.

The flowers and leaves are Punch Bunch punches.
The flowers have been shaped.
The leaves have been lightly sponged
the Rusty Hinge Distressed Ink
to tone down the green.
It also blends the whole of the card together.

The lowest cream layer has been textured
in an embossing folder.
K & Company scrapbook paper was used
under the phrase.
