I don't make sympathy cards that often, but the Summer Silhouette stamp set was the first stamp set I thought of that was appropriate for this type of card.
I used a special technique to "smudge" the background. Using the brayer, I inked it up with crumb cake and rolled it over the flat side of the embossing folder. Then, I laid my Very Vanilla cardstock over top of the ink and rolled it through the Big Shot. The fancy background is what appears. It makes the Lacy background POP!
The butterfly was inked up with Pacific Point and stamped onto Baja Breeze cardstock and then punched with the Elegant Butterfly punch.
They may not be my favourite cards to make, but they are good cards to have around.
