Making sympathy cards is pretty hard to do. You don't want to make the too depressing, but also not too cheery. The Butterfly Kisses stamp set from Lawn Fawn is a great set for making sympathy cards. I created this sympathy card with the set.

For the sky, I used the Rays stencil from Tim Holtz. I first blended some Sqeezed Lemonade Distress Ink without the stencil and then applied the ink with the stencil. I also added some Mustard Seed Distress Ink onto the background with the stencil.

I die cut some grass, using the Grassy Border die and the Simple Grassy Hillsides die set. I used Cilantro cardstock and ink blended the edges with Lucky Clover Distress Ink.

I stamped the images and colored them with Copic Markers. I also used the flower image from Gleeful Gardens. Here are the colors I used:
Bunny: C0 - C3/ RV10 - R83
Bear: E41 - E43/ RV10 - R83
Clouds: C0 - 0
Flowers: B00 - B12/ Y02 - Y05/ YG13 - G07
Butterflies: RV10 - R83/ V01 - V12/ YR21 - Y38/ R22 - R35

I fussy cut the images. I stamped the sentiment onto the background using Soot Ink. I also stamped the swirly line with the heart, using Manatee Ink.

I assembled the card and added some glitter to the butterflies, using the Clear Sparkle Pen from Spectrum Noir.

I always hope I don't have to send these cards, but I always want to have them on hand.
