For the love of butterflies. We, unfortunately, need to have a sympathy card on hand or be able to whip one up quickly. Here I used some of my favorite Sale-a-Bration products to create what I hope will be a beautiful and comforting card during a difficult time.
Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-a-Bration Flower & Field Designer Series Paper has this amazingly beautiful paper that has a black background and the flowers just POPs and I used it as the central focus of this card matted with Merry Merlot Cardstock. I paired it with a second pattern from this paper pack of tone-on-tone Bumblebee and I had it cover the entire card base. This is now one of my favorite techniques/design elements. The greeting comes from the Sale-a-Bration Heal Your Heart Stamp Set which has some beautiful phrases perfect for some of the hard times.
The butterfly dies is from the Butterfly Beauty Dies. These are a kinds 2-step die with a background and a detailed die. I cut the background in Basic Black Cardstock and the detailed out of Pool Party Cardstock. I wanted the butterfly to simple and stand out while not taking away from the Designer Series Paper.
Sale-a-Bration products are all available to be earned for free with a $50 or $100 purchase but will be ending on Feb 28th. Now is the best time to stock up on basic supplies, paper, reinkers, most especially the soon-to-be retiring 2019 – 2021 InColors.
