Today's card is a difficult one to get right. It is a sympathy card,for a dear friend.
I wanted to use Paper Smooches,as this is not often thought of for the bumps and rocks life throws at you-it is such a happy bubbly range of stamps,but it can be turned to for the other types of cards you sadly sometimes need to make.
I originally wanted to make it monotone white,but it didn't quite look right,so I used the stamps and the corresponding dies of Flap Happy (Ironic,I know). I die cut the butterflies in music sheet paper,then again in thick white card,using Jenny's technique from a few blogs back,to stamp and cut perfectly. The solid colour butterflies are embossed in white.They are all mounted onto the music sheet die cuts and focusing around a Prima bulb.
The aim of the card is to symbolize that in times of crisis,family and friends come from all over to be together,to support and love each other,and there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
