A Butterfly Thinlits and Better Together Sympathy Card

I gave the sympathy card do-over a lot of thought.  I decided to go with Wisteria Wonder for the color.  I'm much happier with this card than the one from a couple of days ago.  I did like it but I like this one better.

I started out with a folded half sheet of Whisper White card stock.  Then I added a piece of Wisteria Wonder cut 4-1/8" x 5-3/8".  The top layer is Whisper White cut 4" x 5-1/4".  

I used the Triple Banner punch for the Wisteria Wonder "ribbon" on the left side.  

Next I cut a 2-3/4" x 2-3/4" piece of Whisper White card stock and sponged the edges with Wisteria Wonder.  I die cut the butterfly using the Dazzling Diamonds glitter paper.  I also cut the smaller butterfly from the "Butterfly Thinlits" dies using Vellum.  I colored the vellum with the Wisteria Marker and set it aside to dry.

I stamped the words from the "Better Together" set.  Before you stamp the words, make sure there is room for them by setting the "ribbon" in place.

I set the sponged square piece in place using Dimensionals.  Then I used a glue dot to hold the two butterflies together.  Then I set the butterfly in place using Dimensionals. I added a few rhinestones and it was done.  I'm SO much happier with this card.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

I love butterflies and this is a beautiful card. I'm going to attempt to make something similar for a friend who just lost his wife. Thank you for the dimensions and wonderful example.
