Chelsea Paper - Sympathy Card

This month we will focus on the beautiful Close to My Heart "Chelsea" paper. 

In edition to the paper pack we are also going to use the matching stamp set called "Chelsea Gardens".

This sympathy card starts out as a regular 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base with the fold on top.

The grey cardstock is cut at 4" x 5 1/2" and is adhered to the front of the base leaving a small border on the top and bottom.

The beautiful flower pattern is cut at 3" x 5 1/2" and is centered on the grey cardstock. 

Next we stamped the leaf vine and the butterfly in black ink on a separate piece of white cardstock and fuzzy cut them.

The butterfly was lightly colored in with a blue and green pencil. The "With Sympathy" phrase is also stamped in black ink on a piece of white cardstock measuring 1" x 3 3/4".  Stamp the image to the right of the strip and cut a flag on the opposite side. The phrase is added with foam dots to the card while the leaf vine is stuck underneath it. Ad the butterfly with a foam dot and sprinkle the sequins around on the card.

We left the inside blank beside a strip of the striped paper and another stamped image of the butterfly.
