With Sympathy

Today I continue as the guest designer for The Crafty Card Gallery.  For today's inspiration, I designed a sympathy card.  I have heard from many other crafters that sympathy cards are some of the hardest cards to design.  My hope is that this card will inspire you to try one if you haven't tried one before.

This is known as a "Joy Fold" card.  It is a smaller card attached to a larger card.
The outside is stamped with a Bible verse.

On the inside I added a second stamped sentiment and a butterfly cut out 
from the Wall Decor and More Cricut cartridge.

By pulling back the page with the butterfly you can see that 
there is a place for the person to write a note. 

I hope I have inspired you.  Have a wonderful day.

Thanks for stopping by!
