Feel Goods Butterfly Card

Hey Stampers !!

happy Sale-a-bration to you !! LOL Thats' right, SAB starts today !! WOO HOO !! It's the most wonderful time of the year to be a stamper !! For every $60 that you spend, you get to choose a FREE product from the fun SAB brochure !! Check out all of the great free stuff here !!! The card I am showing you today is one we are making at my January Stamp Club on Thursday ! I am so excited about it. it is a quick and easy card, but I think it is just beautiful ! The main image is a gorgeous sentiment from the new Feel Goods stamp set in the Spring Catalogue. This set is chock full of the most beautiful verses !! Take a look for yourself !!


Isn't that stunning !?!? I love it. And very quick to make !! I stamped the beautiful sentiment on a piece of Whisper White measuring 4" x 2-1/2" in Early Espresso ink towards the upper right corner. This piece got layered onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock measuring 4-1/4" x 2-3/4". I then stamped this smaller butterfly image from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set on some scrap Whisper White in Calypso Coral ink and Lucky Limeade ink. Then I punched them out with the new Bitty Butterfly punch. I used the Elegant Butterfly punch to pop out some butterflies using the 2011-2013 In Color DSP Stacks, also in Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade. A couple of Rhinestones in the centre of the butterflies and they were done ! Very simple and fun. 

My main layer is a piece of Whisper White measuring 4" x 5-1/4". I ran it through my Big Shot with the Honeycomb embossing folder. Love that texture !! This was then adhered to a card base of Lucky Limeade. I wrapped a piece of 3/8" Calypso Coral Ruffled Ribbon around my stamped layer, and adhered it to the card using dimensionals. A bow of the same ribbon really finished off this sweet card.

I hope you enjoyed my card today !! I am looking forward to sharing it with my stamp girls ... wouldn't you like to make cards like this with us ?? If you would like to join my Stamp Club, please let me know !! Thanks a lot for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!
