For the first card, I die-cut the image with my Nellie's Decorative Ovals. The sentiment is a clear stamp from Hero Arts Everyday Sayings set. The embossing folder is Cuttlebug Treillage. The ribbon is Crafty Ribbons 6 mm Grosgrain (I won this, thank you, Ali!). I finished off the card with 3 black gems.
For Card #2, I printed the Roses image directly onto my card and then overstamped it with the same sympathy sentiment mentioned above. I used strips of washi tape along the top of the card and added a butterfly die cut (Elizabeth Craft Designs). I added some sparkle to the roses and butterfly with my Wink of Stella pen.
For the third card, the image was printed on pale-grey-and-white patterned paper, a leftover snippet from my MME Indie Chic Saffron 6x6 pad. I tore the edges and layered it onto a torn black panel, also a leftover. I like to use up my scraps before they get out of control. I used some black-and-white patterned paper from Recollections and layered it onto black cardstock. I stamped the same sentiment from Hero Arts Everyday Sayings set on a vellum scrap, which I die-cut into a banner using my Taylored Expressions Banner Stacklets 1. To finish the card, I accented it with a Cheery Lynn Mini Butterfly die cut and three black gems.
Here's a look at the set of three cards together.
