I made this sympathy card using the masking technique. I cut an oval from a piece of paper and used the hole left by it over the card front as a mask. I then stamped my scene and sponged some ink inside the mask. I removed the mask and stamped the sentiment and added the butterfly. I used a border punch for the bottom and added some ribbon. I like to keep the colours fairly muted for a sympathy card.
Although sympathy cards are for sad occasions, they can still bring some comfort to those grieving. *HUGS* to those that need them.
