Another No Cricut Card : Sympathy Card

HI everyone, I am here to show you a sympathy card I am making for someone at work.  I know not everyone has a Cricut or other cutting machine, so I like to throw in a no machine card every so often.  This card is a legal size card to fit into a standard long envelop (envelop size is 4 1/8 X 9 1/2).  The card itself is 4 X 9 with the layers being 1/8 th smaller than the next.
I used a base paper neutral in color and the designer paper is from DCWV.  I used the Neutral Stack and the Mariposa Stack. 

Here is the inside which is a stamp from Stampin UP and the butterflies are from Close to My Heart.

This sentiment really fit this card.
Here to the right is a better look at the butter flies.  I hand cut the butterflies of of the second sheet of the same paper and gave some dimension to this card.  The smaller butterfly  I added some ultra thick embossing powder to it and gave it a nice glossy look.  Black Pop Dots were added to stick them down.  Bling was the last element to this card used as the centers of the flowers.

 I really love just using paper sometimes.  It makes for an easy card and you do not have to break out your machines.
HUGS and Blessings,
