Feminine Sympathy

"If nothing ever changed there would be no butterflies" is a much-loved sentiment from a retired Stampin' Up! stamp set named Flight of the Butterfly. I used the Swallowtail background stamp to create some feminine sympathy cards as part of a customer's order this month. The sentiment is from the set Teeny Tiny Wishes which is a must have for every stamper - it has 24 stamps in a variety of fonts for every occasion. 

The technique used to create these simple yet elegant cards is called triple time stamping. It looks impressive but it really is quite simple to create. I used Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe cut in 3 sizes:
4-1/4 x 5-1/2"
3-1/4 x 4-1/2"
2-1/4 x 3-1/2"

My Whisper White pieces are sized:
4 x 5-1/4"
3 x 4-1/4"
2 x 3-1/4"

Simply layer your Whisper White pieces together, stamp your image, and then assemble your colored layers of cardstock in between the stamped Whisper White layers!

Hope your week is off to a great start!
