A Rose Wonder Papillon Potpourri Sympathy Card

There's several elements used in this card.  I didn't mention in the title that I also used the "Softly Falling" embossing folder. I had made the circle and then embossed it.  I didn't want a 1/4 sheet of embossed card stock.  Though when I think about it, sometime down the road I'll be embossing a small piece again.  Oh well.  LOL

For this card I used a folded half-sheet of Perfect Plum card stock.  I cut it in half on the short side, which means this card opens at the bottom.  

I cut a square of Whisper White card stock 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" and the top square was cut 3" x 3".  

I die cut a scalloped circle using Perfect Plum card stock and layered it behind the white textured circle.  

I stamped the butterfly from the "Papillon Potpourri" set. The ink I used on this card is Perfect Plum. 

The words are from the "Rose Wonder" set.  I like the fonts that were used to create those words.  

I set the circle on top of the smaller square.  I let it hang over the edge a bit and I trimmed off the excess. Then I  set the squares in place using Dimensionals.  I set the main panel (that measures 4" x 5-1/4") in place with tape.  The butterfly was set in place using a trimmed Dimensional.

I found this fun layout at Arlene's "Water Dots" website.  I changed it a little but not too much, only because I didn't have the same stamps she used.  

This card was pretty simple to make.  I was able to make it in under 20 minutes.  I have a lot of cards on my blog that can be made in under 20 minutes.  Click here to see them.  

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
Wanda
