Heart2Heart Challenge - Sympathy cards

This week's Heart2heart Challenge is sympathy cards, which are always good to have on hand - and my stash is getting low.  I made some similar cards a few months ago, and really liked using the Miracle papers for sympathy cards, as they're so soft & pretty.  I've done two version, the first one is pretty straight up:

For the second one, I made the cream oval a negative die cut through all the layers, so you're actually seeing the sentiment and butterfly on the inside of the card.  I used my metal die as a template and sponged bamboo ink inside of it to leave a bit of an oval shape on the inside as well:




























and here's the inside:

Patterned papers are Miracle; Cardstock is Colonial White & Kraft; Inks are Bamboo, Heavenly Blue & Desert Sand; Just Paper Blooms, Butterfly; Mocha Opaque Pearls - all CTMH.  Stamp set is Blessings, Verve; Dies are Spellbinders & Taylored Expressions.
