A colleague at work asked if I still make cards to wish I replied of cos yes. She mentioned she needs to buy a condolence/thoughtful card but didn't have the time as she was busy with her studies. I came up with the idea of these cards simply as a thoughtful card, leaving the inside blank for my colleague to write her own message in it.
I embossed a 15 cm x 15 cm white card using the All Occasion Embossing folder from Papercraft Essentials issue 122, heat embossed it with a sparkle embossing powder, put a ribbon around the inside spine of the card, added punched out butterflies, glittered the wings & added a gem to each butterfly.
I cut out a silver frame, added a white frame topper to that, stamped a With Love sentiment & glittered it.
I made the matching envelope using the same All Occasions Embossing folder with a white frame to write the receivers address on it if she was to post it to the recipient.
