The Gnome and The Butterfly


It has been a hot minute since I colored up some Stamping Bella!


Who says sympathy cards cannot be whimsical or quirky. I am hoping that when I have to use this card, the non sympathy style will make the recipient smile. This is a super versatile set, the gnome and the butterfly are both separate stamps. There is also a sentiment.


I did my butterfly with black and yellow. On the little dots on the butterfly I used Nuvo Dream Drops. The cloud was done with a retired die from Paper Smooches.


My sentiment is from My Favorite Things. The banner die is also from them, but retired.

What a nice sympathy card. I am always looking for different designs for sympathy cards. I never have any pre-made and then scramble when I need to make one. Thanks for sharing!
