A sympathy card in lilac and kraft with butterfly embellishment

A friend asked for a sympathy card and needed it in a rush. I decided to use these docrafts Papermania Just to Say...Sympathy Die-Cut Toppers. Since the center image is small I increased my mat size to take up more visual space on the card front. I just happened to have the perfect coordinating butterfly embellishment. I was able to plan and implement this card in under thirty minutes, which is quick for me.

Supply List
Paper—cardstock, kraft
Topper—Papermania Just to Say Sympathy/Thinking of You Die-Cut Toppers (PMA 157176)
Embellishments—ribbon, butterfly


  1. Beautiful, beautiful card, and very well-proportioned. Love how you used the mats and patterned paper to give focus to the central image, and that butterfly is the perfect accent. 30 minutes? I'm IMPRESSED! Looks like it took much longer!

  2. Jolie combo des couleurs, la carte est très belle!

  3. Pretty colors and the butterfly is perfect for the card.

  4. I love the sweet, solitary butterfly....the colors in this are gorgeous!

  5. Very nice card. I like it. Very well done.
