Artfully Sent Sympathy Card

Sympathy cards are always the hardest for me to put together- that is why I am grateful that my Artfully Sent cricut cartridge has a few options.

I am playing along with Just Add Ink's Just Add Sympathy prompt this week, as well as Bitten By The Bug 2's Butterflies or Bees challenge.

I started by cutting the card in a soft Champagne cardstock, which I thought worked well for a sympathy card. I then added some soft blues and greens behind the negative images.

The butterfly was cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge, and I stamped over ti with a border stamp set for extra interest. I also stamped an extra line under the cut sentiment, as I thought it needed something else.

This card was a quick and easy one of mine to put together as I have been feeling under the weather this week, but I am glad that I still made time to create.

Thanks for stopping by today!
