Positive Thoughts, 2020 Stampin' Up! Spring Catalog, Death of a Child Card

While looking though some files on my computer I found this poem. I had saved it to make a card using it some day.  I had just gotten the "Positive Thoughts" set an I thought I could try to make this poem work with it.

I typed the words on my computer and printed them out.  Then I die cut them with the pretty rectangle die that came in the "Nature's Thoughts" dies that are a part of the "Positive Thoughts" bundle.  

I took a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock and I stamped the leaves from the "Positive Thoughts" set using Granny Apple Green that I stamped off once and then onto the card front and then once more on the card front.  So I have some light and lighter leaves.

I cut a 2-1/3" x 4-5/8" piece of Petal Pink card stock for the back layer.  I taped the word piece to this piece. I added Dimensionals to the back and set it in place on top of the card base.

I stamped the butterfly from the "Positive Thoughts" set and I die cut it out using the matching die. I also cut out the small butterfly that was also in the pack.  Both were done on Whisper White card stock.

I colored the butterfly using the light and dark Petal Pink Blends pens and the light Pumpkin Pie Blends pen.  I also colored the tiny butterfly using the light Pumpkin Pie Blends pen.  I could have and probably should have cut it from the center of the Petal Pink layer, but I was in the designing process and not thinking frugal at the time.  I plan on making more of these. I'm going to be putting them in my web store.  If it's sold out, check back. I will be making more.

I liked making the butterfly, it's so pretty and easy to color.

This was a very simple card to make.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by today,
