Butterflies & Poppies Sympathy Card

Hello! Since I find sympathy cards a challenge to create, I decided to make another one. This Butterflies & Poppies Sympathy Card was based off a card I found on Pinterest (click here for inspiration card link). I used the Framed Tulips embossing folder for the outside detail and layered the center with the stamped poppies image. The colors are Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Island Indigo, Very Vanilla, and Crisp Cantaloupe. I inked the edges of the script paper by My Mind's Eye with Antique Linen distress ink from Tim Holtz. The final touch was the addition of the basic pearls on the butterflies. I'm definitely pleased with how this one turned out. Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

My Butterflies & Poppies Sympathy Card is entered into the following challenges:


  1. Oh, Andrea, this is gorgeous! Love those poppies, and the embossing is perfect. I'm the same way - I like to make sympathy cards in batches.

  2. Very pretty! I love how you used the tulip border folder. I find sympathy cards hard to make too. Good idea to make several at a time. Thanks for joining us at ATS&M this week.

  3. A very pretty card Andrea, love what you've created. Sympathy cards are hard to get right, but you've succeeded here. Thanks for sharing it with us at Diva's, Jx
