With Sympathy {Reverse Confetti}

Hello there!  Today, I have a sympathy card to share with you using products from Reverse Confetti.  Unfortunately, I have needed to make several of these difficult cards over the last few months.  They are tough for me to create because it's for such a sad occasion.  Instead of focusing on that though, I try to think about the person that I am sending the card to while I make it, and pour lots of extra love into creating it.

To make this card, I started off with an A2 Iced Aqua card base.  I used the Wonky Stripe Panel Confetti Cuts to cut a fun panel from Stone cardstock.  I cut it again with some patterned paper from the Free Spirit paper pad.  I glued the diecut to the center of the card, and then used the triangle pieces cut from the patterned paper to fill in a few of the open areas.  I stamped a sentiment from the Sentiment Essentials stamp set in Stone ink, and then diecut it with the coordinating Sentiment Essentials Confetti Cuts.  I popped that up with some foam tape.  Behind the sentiment, I nestled in some leaves from the Build a Bunch stamp set, which I stamped in Stone ink, and shaded with warm grey Copic markers.  Those were then diecut with the coordinating Build a Bunch Confetti Cuts. I added a tiny butterfly, perched on top of the leaves.  I stamped one of the tiny butterflies from the Butterfly Dreams stamp set in Stone ink onto Iced Aqua cardstock, and then diecut it with the coordinating Butterfly Dreams Confetti Cuts.  I added a bit of detail with a copic marker and a white gel pen.

With Sympathy

I added a strip of 1/8" scor-tape to just the center if the butterfly, then carefully folded the wings up for a bit of dimension.  To finish things off,  I added a scattering of clear sequins.

With Sympathy

That's all for me today!  Thanks so  much for stopping by! :)
