Abstract Impressions Butterfly Thank You Card

There is no denying a beautiful butterfly. 
I was very excited to get a new butterfly die with the Garden Impressions Bundle (148348). In the last catalog we had a set of beautiful butterflies but it has since retired. When I saw this new set in the catalog I was excited to play with it. 

This card came out so great. I wanted to show texture and the different ways to add them to a card. I focused on one main color and brought that to life. 

What I love about this card is it can be made in any color. You can use any color and pair it up with either silver or gold embossing powder and you'll have a stand-out card. One that someone special will truly appreciate. 

White Card Base:  8 1/2 x 5 1/2
score - 4 1/4
Silver/Gold Foil:  1 1/4 x 5 1/4
Blue/Pink Card stock: 1 1/4 x 5
Designer Series Paper: 1/2 x 5
scraps for circles: 4th largest circle for foil paper and 3rd largest for cardstock

Hope you enjoyed!

Tropical Chic Celebrate Card

Time to Celebrate..... celebrate what you ask?
I have no idea..... but lets party anyways. 
This card is perfect for celebrating any occasion. It is fun, bright and beautifully hand-made. 

This is another type of card that can be made and any color. Pairing it up with embossing powder and it will pop better than the wine bottles. 

I can't wait to give this card to someone. And I know I have a few birthdays to celebrate this month.  

Card Base: 4 1/4 x 11
score- 5 1/2
White: 4 x 5 1/4

scrap of gold foil

Hope you enjoyed!

A Little Wild Baby Cards

I have pushed myself and am making more baby cards. I love this stamp set. A Little Wild (144344) is the perfect baby card stamp set. The animals are so cute and super fun to color. 

I first made the lion card. I mainly wanted to use the Tufted Embossing Folder (146335) and incorporate it into a baby card. But when it came to making my video on the card I didn't want another lion card. So I made the cute bear and it became my fave!

These were semi-quick cards to put together. It was easy to cut everything up and even a quick coloring with the Blends Markers made it fun. I know anyone who gets this card will love it. What makes it fun too is that the stamps actually make tags, so your card will match the present perfectly. 

Card Base  4 1/4 x 11
score 5 1/2
Matching card stock 4 x 5 1/4
Whisper White scrap for animal
Silver scrap for circle
Layered solid circle #4 largest
Scalloped circle #4 largest 

Hope you enjoyed!
