Priceless French Flair!

I wanted to make a sympathy card using the Priceless set but it was just a bit too "fancy." SO I thought if I used a background that didn't have any dots in it, it might tone it down a bit and I think it did. I masked off the doves in the French Flair background stamp and stamped the butterflies there instead. Then I stamped 3 butterflies on Pale Plumb card stock and cut them out. I didn't cut the antenna because they will be visible on the French Flair piece. I did roll the wings around a pencil to make them curl a bit. I gave them a slight fold in the center and then set them in place with Crystal Effects. I did add the words before I attached the butterflies. I thought they might get in the way. I added a thin layer of Pale Plumb behind the Whisper White and then set those on top of the Perfect Plum. The butterflies took a little while to cut out (fortunately there were only 3!!!) but other than that it was a pretty simple card to make. This would also make a nice Get Well, Birthday, Wedding and/or Anniversary cards. It's all in the colors you use for those occasions!




Thank you SO much for stopping by!

A beautiful card. I love the french flair BG stamp. Very creative to stamp the butterfly's in place of the birds. Thanks for sharing.
