Today’s card is just full of sweetness. The colors are soft, the images are gentle – it’s just, well, lovely. I hope you like it too.

Pretty Pop-Up Sympathy.1

I cut three Basic White panels & ran two of them through the Pretty Pop-Up Dies using the rectangular die. I colored the images with very soft colors… Stampin’ Blends: Light Highland Heather, Light So Saffron, Dark Soft Sea Foam, and Light Smoky Slate. I stamped the last Basic White panel with a sentiment from Nature’s Prints (love the fonts in this set) in Smoky Slate ink, then ran this through the the mini cut & emboss machine using just the two butterfly images. I made sure the butterflies on each panel had their wings raised just a bit :O) then adhered all three panels to a Soft Sea Foam piece of card stock, then onto a slightly larger panel of Basic White, popped that on dimensionals and added it to the Soft Sea Foam card base. Oh wait… that card base has a piece of Subtles 6×6 DSP on it in Soft Sea Foam 😳 And the card front was done.

Pretty Pop-Up Dies.inside

For the inside… The sentiment is stamped in Smoky Slate ink using the Peaceful Moments stamp set – on a Basic White panel. I adhered a 1/2″ strip of the same Subtles 6×6 DSP near the bottom of the panel and adhered it to the inside of the card.

Pretty Pop-Up Sympathy.3

It’s really hard to see, but the envelope flap was run through the Timeworn Torn 3D embossing folder – and that was it – card is ready to be sent. This is going to a very favorite person who just lost her husband, age 95 or maybe 96. He really, really cared well for his wife who has memory issues. She still knows me and will appreciate the card, but the loss of her hubby will throw her into a tailspin, mostly because of the memory problems. Ugh… loss is very, very hard. I could have gone through my stash of cards and sent one already made, but there is something cathartic and healing in making a card for someone special.
