For this sympathy card, I started with a piece of white core paper which I embossed and sanded very slightly. I glued this to a layer of coordinating cardstock. I tore a strip of vellum and embossed the greeting near the bottom edge. I punched a hole in the background before adding the vellum strip securing the ends to the back of the layer. I had the vellum intersect the opening just a little. I glued my large element to the front of a large white card and added the butterfly with 3D foam tape.
