Sympathy Card Using CTMH Layered Butterflies Thin Cuts and CTMH Cherish Cardmaking Stamp

Hello friends.  I hope you are doing well.  It is above 100 daily now.  I sure hope this heat wave ends soon.  Please stay cool and hydrated.  I hope the weather is cooler at your place.

I created several cards at one time; but didn't get them posted.  This one uses the wonderful CTMH Layered Butterflies thin cuts CC52115; which includes 5 thin cuts and are still available.  I seem to always need sympathy cards; so I created several at one time.  The paper is from Chelsea Gardens (retired); but the sentiment on the outside is still available with the fabulous flower and it is CTMH Cherish Cardmaking Stamp C1958.

Click here for my new CTMH Videos. I added CTMH Workspace Wonder products to my desk a few years ago; and I was not able to use my video recorder on my desk after I did that.  It took me a long time to finally come up with a way to do videos with that same recorder; but on a different arm/holder.  Thanks for your patience. 

Remember - Keep On Creating!!
It's Good For Your Health!!


  1. Love the simplicity of the design - you used some of my favourite papers! Thanks for sharing with us at MTTC :)

  2. I always have a challenging time with Sympathy cards, however you hit it out of the park with this one. I love just the little bit of glitter paper, to give it that extra touch. Thank you so much for joining and I look forward to seeing you again on the front porch at 613 Avenue

  3. An awesome card, it's a elegant design, perfect for these kinds of cards. A great job. Thanks for joining us at A Place To Start. Hugs, María.

  4. Beautiful sympathy card! They are always difficult to make but love the symbolic butterfly on this one. The paper is so pretty! Thank you for playing with us at the HLS Die Challenge. I hope you can join us again soon.
