For this card, I used a piece of the Modern Medley Designer Series Paper layered on Whisper White on a card base of Coastal Cabana. The butterfly is mounted on a piece of Coastal Cabana punched with the Artisan Label Punch. I very lightly stamped it with the lines from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set. It just adds a tiny bit of something to the background. Then that punch is layered on a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper on top of a 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch in Strawberry Slush.
The butterflies are punched with the Bitty Butterfly Punch as well as the larger Elegant Butterfly Punch. I stamped both butterflies with the stamp from Gorgeous Grunge that has the diagonal lines in one direction. I only stamped that once on the Elegant Butterfly. But on the Bitty Butterfly I stamped the diagonal lines once and for the second time stamped the lines perpendicularly and that made the crossed diagonal lines! I love how it looks! And a few Rhinestone Jewels add a little bling to the butterfly! The greeting is from the stamp set A Dozen Thoughts.
Today, as we all remember September 11th, perhaps we should each make a card for someone and send it. It can be to a loved one, to a friend, a neighbor, a teacher, a child, anyone. The act of making the card and sending it will make you feel good today to express your feelings to someone or just to say “hello” or “I’m thinking of you!”. And imagine the good feeling THEY will have in a day or two or three when they receive it as a surprise in their mailbox.
Check out the Butterfly Bundle from Stampin’ Up! today in my Stampin’ Up! Online Store. You’ll find that Bitty Butterfly Punch rather useful as well as the beautiful butterfly stamp set. You can put it on your order tomorrow with the newly available Magnetic Platform, which goes back on sale September 12th.
