Cast Your Burden Sympathy Card

Welcome to another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!
I'm so glad you could join me!
Grab a warm beverage, kick your feet up and stay awhile!

I'm continuing to work with the "Butterfly Medley" collection this week.
I decided I wanted to create a more muted card that could be used as an encouragement or sympathy card.  Even though this collection boasts bright spring colors, it's so easy to pair several lighter colors together and create a calm and soothing piece that speaks to the heart. 

I decided to go with a pale teal color paired with whites and yellows.  
The dandelion stamp in the Botanical Swirls Cling Stamp Set was the perfect image for this type of card. 

Before a detailed description, let's take a peek...


I've stamped the image in a soft Gray Flannel Memento ink and colored it with soft greens and yellows from the Spectrum Noir Blendable Pencils line.

Here's a closer look at the stamped image...


 I've stamped and die cut a few images from the Butterfly Medley Cling Stamp Set and colored them in pale yellows so they just kind of blend into the card scheme.  As you can see there's some amount of distressing that has taken place to give the card a more tattered look.  The image panel has been adhered to the background die cut and has then been popped up off the card front using 3D pop dots.  The bible verse has also been stamped in Gray Flannel Memento ink and has been popped up off the card as well giving it even more dimension.  This wonderful scripture stamp set can also be purchased at the Heartfelt Creations online store.   The finishing touch to the creation is the cream colored twine and a lone button.
A simple and easy creation, perfect to have on hand for someone who needs a little lift, or for expressing your condolences.  (For full instructions on how to recreate this card, please see the HC blog.)

Also, remember that there is another breathtaking collection of new projects on the Heartfelt Creations blog today...it's chalked full of beauty and lots of inspiration.  Be sure to stop by and visit a few of the design teams blogs and leave some love!  I'd love to hear what you think of this creation as well...feel free to leave a comment and maybe even become a follower!  I'd love to share more with you!
