Heartfelt Sympathy ☆ CottageCutz

I have a sympathy card to share today in toned down neutral colors with a pop of teal and gold --- and I kinda love this combo! What do you think?   

The flowers and leaves on my card are from the new Flowers & More Release at CottageCutz, and are all on sale for 30% off right now!  

There's also a President's Day SALE going on thru Friday!!  Save up to 70% off!!  Shop early for best assortment ☺  

I used a past Color Challenge on SCS (CC883) 
Cinnamon Cider 
Bermuda Bay
Coastal Cabana
(I used Soft Suede instead of cinnamon)

  • Sand-colored Card Base = Cut 9-1/2" x 6" - then score the longest edge at 4-3/4"
  • Patterned Paper (Teal, SU!)) = Cut 4" x 5-1/4"

1.  I embossed my teal patterned paper with a Parisian 3D embossing folder, and attached to Suede card panel (4-1/4" x 5-1/2")

2.  I stamped a sentiment (from the Sorry For Your Loss Stamp Set at Divinity Designs) on my white circle, then sponged some Gathered Twigs distress ink to tone down the white.  I glued it onto the scalloped circle, then onto my card front, over to the right edge.

3.  I die cut Flower 3, Flower 5, Leafy Branches 1, 2, and 3, and the Butterfly Kayla from white cardstock and then added distress inks to color them; Gathered Twigs for branches & butterfly body.... Peacock Feathers for the blossoms and butterfly wings... Broken China for smallest blossom center.  

4.  I figured out placement of everything and glued in place, then adhered panel to the center of my card base.

5.  And lastly, I spattered some metallic gold acrylic paint over my leafy branches (mostly).  I love the look this gives for a nice finishing touch.  

Here's one more look of the finished card...
