Thinking of you and more
When I come across a design that I like and will work for these occasions, I try to have several on hand...seems like you need one when you're least prepared. This card looks quite involved but really it's not. It can be done in any color combo, on any color, and still look great.
The base layer is off-white cardstock with Hero Arts butterflies stamped all over it in a taupe ink. The top layer is also off-white but stippled with several shades of yellow, peach and orange dye inks. More butterflies are stamped in taupe, then overstamped, slightly offsetting the image, with white pigment ink. This creates a shadow effect and I use the technique frequently. The sentiment is from Endless Creations and was stamped in archival ink that matches the middle layer. A bit of ribbon between the layers brings out the peachy-orange color in the card.
I hope you'll remember that it's the thought that counts. You never know when your words will bring comfort to a troubled soul.
