Stampin' Up! Australia - Color Coach Card #117 - Butterfly Basics Sympathy card

Chocolate Chip #3



I thought I would make a card for CASOLOGY this week using some Color Coach colors - Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango and Always Artichoke.

The theme word is STORY. The mother of a friend of mine passed away recently and although I had already sent her a card (so this one is not for her), it got me thinking about sympathy cards and the story of someone's life. I think this sentiment is beautiful as the memory of that person still lives on as they those who love them remember their life's story.

I put some Wink of Stella (clear) on the flowers and on a few of the stems just to soften the card a little bit and to reference the radiant sentiment. To echo the story theme, I stamped my sentiment on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and tore the sides and rolled the ends so it looked like a scroll. 

The only thing I think I would change about this is I would replace the Chocolate Chip layer with a Very Vanilla layer...after looking at the finished card, I think this would be more pleasing. 

I hope you like my card. If you have been inspired by it and would like to support my creative business, all the supplies may be found by clicking through the links below which will take you to my store (some links not active until 2nd June).

  1. Such a lovely flower and a beautiful sentiment for a sympathy card. Yes, the story of one's life is a perfect take on the CASology cue this week!

  2. A beautiful and elegant take on the cue word, Alison. I love how the scroll lets the sentiment take centre stage. Thanks for playing along with CASoogy this week!
