Vellum Butterfly Sympathy Card

 I recently made this sympathy card featuring the gorgeous Brilliant Wings dies.

A video tutorial is at the end of this post as well as cutting measurements and a list of products used.

The card base is Thick Basic White.  The mat piece is Daffodil Delight which was die cut using the larges die in the Scalloped Contours set.  The card front is Basic White which was cut using a die from the Stitched Rectangles Set.

The focal point, the gorgeous butterfly, was made by sponging some inks onto vellum cardstock, mounting it on a scrap of Basic White and then die cutting it with a solid butterfly from the Brilliant Wings die set.  The top layer of of the butterfly was cut using the coordinating detailed butterfly die from the same set.  I used Early Espresso for that layer.  The butterfly’s body was embellished with the new Classic Matte Dots.

The top right corner was stamped with a sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set in Early Espresso.  I love the addition of the soft Open Weave ribbon in Polished Pink, which was tied into a delicate bow.

The inside sentiment is also from the Peaceful Moments set. Although this picture has it stamped in Evening Evergreen (from another card), for this butterfly card it was stamped in Early Espresso.  (I mailed the card before I realized I hadn’t taken a picture of the inside!)

Although I didn’t use the coordinating stamp set that goes with the Brilliant  Butterfly Dies, that set — Butterfly Brilliance — is absolutely gorgeous!
