Springtime Beautiful Butterfly

The card I would like to share with you today uses the gorgeous Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper offered in the Stampin' Up! Occassions Mini catalog. I simply love this paper.The border of the background layer uses the Framed Tulips embossing folder, also available in the mini. These products are only available until April 30 so be sure to order them while there is still time. This was really a fun card to make and it is one of my new favorites.

The difference in a handmade card is in the details. An extra butterfly adhered to the envelope is a hint of what is to come. A small border of designer paper and a little sponging inside the Very Vanilla layer make this card extra special.

Stampin’ Up! products used:
Stamp set: Sincere Salutations
Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla
Designer  Series Paper: Springtime Vintage
Ink pads: Baja Breeze (for sponging), Not Quite Navy
Accessories: Big Shot, Beautiful Butterflies die, Framed Tulips embossing folder, basic pearls jewels, stamping sponge, mini glue dots.

Thanks for visiting today!
