  • If there’s a paper crafting tool I can’t resist, it’s a Stampin’ Up! punch.  The Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly “take off” when layered together.  A Glue Dot keeps them in place.  Quick and easy!

  1. Mary, This card is so simple but very elegant. This gives a nice WOW factor.
    You are amazing. Thank you for sharing. I love the simple sentiment. It says it all.

  2. Thank you Mary! I need to make a sympathy card ASAP. A friend’s father died and I think they really would love to have the butterflies on the card. The colors are perfect too. I don’t have that stamp but I am sure I have something that will work. The colors are just perfect and I just received my punches last week. I will be using your pretty card as an example. Thank you!!! What perfect timing.

  3. Such a beautiful card….soft and simple. Love the certainly celery….one of my favorite go to colors! Thanks so much for sharing.
