Today I’m sharing a little set of four cards I made using an idea I got from Mary Fish. I added my own ideas and came up with these. They would make a great gift tied up with a pretty bow.
I used four of the 2013-2015 In Color colors. Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding. The butterfly is cut out on the Big Shot using the NEW Butterfly Thinlits.
The original idea just used the card color as background but I decided to add some DSP. The butterflies are adhered only in the center so that the wings can be “fluffed” up to come off the card. I also made envelope liners to match each one using the matching DSP.
I highly recommend you browse through the NEW Occasions Catalog (on right with bouquet on the front cover) and check out the Butterfly Bundle on page 26. It is a great value since I know you will get tons of use out of this stamp set and the thinlits. Just spend $50.00 and you can get a FREE item from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure (just below the Occasions Catalog on right). I used sentiments from Lotus Blossom and Simply Wonderful (both from the SAB Brochure).
