Cards - Sympathy


My community project is making sympathy and thank you cards for the Cleveland Clinic (a local hospital) Hospice organization.   They send out over 100 cards a month.    Here's a sympathy card I recently put together using the SWALLOWTAIL stamp set and the PETITE PAIRS stamp set.     I cut 3/4" off one card edge and added an inch of Design Series Paper ENGLISH GARDEN to the inside message.    

I only used one ink color, Mossy Meadow which is the same as the card  base.  I love the way the Mossy Meadow green ink brings out the details of the butterfly.     Details on how to make this card are listed below along with the item numbers you can order to make it for yourself.
