butterfly sympathy card made using the Live Simply cartridge.

Hello, friends!

I hope you all are finding some inspiration this week. Know that all of these cards could be easily transformed into thank you. birthday, wedding, or just because cards. Most of them would just need a different stamp.

Today's card is made using the Live Simply Cricut Lite cartridge. This cartridge is so versatile and fun. It is one that I gravitate to every time I think of using the lites. It really is suitable for almost any occasion...even sympathy cards!

The butterfly was cut at 2 1/4".
I added brown pearls called opaques that I purchased from Close To My Heart. I feel they add a lot!

The stamp is from Papertrey Ink.
 Thanks for stopping by today!

Like all things Butterfly. Especially like the brown pearls you used. Has anyone else noticed that the 'prove youre not a robot' text is more odd than usual with a single tiny, yes tiny number in blue/white s one of the 2 parts to type?

Loved both of your cards, and the pearls are just the right added touch.

Oh Melanie what a sweet, sweet sympathy card and the butterfly is the perfect choice because of it's significance of renewal of spirit.
You always know how to share the perfect thing for the situation.

Love the card. i put a butterfly somewhere on almost all my cards, so this is a great idea. Thanks.

beautiful card. Sympathy cards are not my favorite to make - means I lost someone I love in this life. Did not know butterfly meant renewal of spirit but glad to hear that. I love butterflies.

Your card is so pretty and soft. I love the colours you used and the polka dots make such a great detail on the plain paper. I like the brown pearls for the body. A little touch of shine without being to blingy.
Thanks for sharing! :)
