Still another sympathy card

This is a card I made for my upline after her father-in-law died suddenly during the holidays while shoveling his driveway. Apparently I had it a little two high on my scanner, but you get the idea.

Before I joined the Heartfelt Stampers group of demonstrators, I almost never used Stampin' Dimensionals, but now I use them all the time! They add a depth that I just love. And I'm having fun using them with the same color card stock, as I did in this card. The top layer is dry embossed with our Elegant Bouquet Folder, which I think coordinates nicely with the Bordering on Romance stamp set. I cut the label shape from the same layer using one of our Label Collection Framelits, then raised the whole thing off the card front with dimensionals.

I also had fun cutting the butterflies from our new Primrose Petals Core'dinations card stock and sanding the embossed surfaces to make them stand out. I have also used this same design for a 90th birthday card using the Memorable Moments stamp set instead of Bordering on Romance.
