A swarm of butterflies

A sympathy card with a swarm of butterflies for Kara.

I'm praying that wonderful memories will surround her 
to comfort and support her at this difficult time. 

 I was inspired to do this card after seeing this one on interest. Click on the picture to enlarge. I knew I wanted to do vellum embossed butterflies and to use acetate to make them look like they're in flight.

I was unable to get a good picture with the white on white photo booth I use... 
this one shows better.

This card was fun and easy to make... well a lot of fussy cutting, but I do that while watching the TV. I can't wait to make another one ...maybe with some bright colors. The Pinterest link does show a picture tutorial on how to do this. I bet you'll want to try it too!

Be well and hold your loved ones close. ~ Carole


  1. Carole, this is amazing and the butterflies do look like they are in flight. Could you drop me the link to the tutorial? I would love to try this.

  2. Oh shoot, just saw the link......duh!!

  3. Oh my word...gorgeous! A beautiful memory card for a sad occasion. I definitely must case this.

  4. Carole, this is breathtaking! Seriously, it must take your breath away to open it IRL! I've never seen it done before and I am mesmerized! Brilliant job!! (A heartfelt and beautiful sympathy card.)
