A Set of Sympathy Cards

Once again I needed sympathy cards for two different families in the same week...and I was out! So I decided to do it right this time and make a whole set of them all the same. But if you know me, you know that is really impossible! I did use the same printed card stock and a similar theme for all six cards but they were still all different. I gave away the two I needed immediately...even forgot to take pictures! But here are the other four:

 My favorite is the one with the butterfly, which is some sort of sticker with a double layer for the iridescent wings and tiny gold wires for the antennae. Each of the cards has a solid color base card stock and a cream color layer which is a printed and embossed card from a set of print-yourself wedding invitations. I just chose an accent color or two and stamped tiny flowers near the branches in the those colors. A little embellishment on each card and the computer-generated sentiment....voila! All done!

The butterfly card is being entered in two challenges: 

My list of supplies used:
Wedding invitation card stock - American Crafts "Blossoms"
Solid card stock - from my stash
Small aqua roses - Prima
Butterfly - Jolee's Boutique/EK Success
Turquoise flower - "Gardenia"
Purple/lavender silk flowers - Hobby Lobby
Foliage die cuts - Spellbinders
Ranger Stickles "Star Dust"
Tiny flower stamps - generic foam stamps (my stash)

And here are the insides of two of the cards. Another piece of the inviation card stock with little stamped flowers and a hint of Stickles!
Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peak at my latest creations!
