Simply Sunday: Butterfly Gala

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I have a beautiful card to share with you today that is simple to recreate. I’ve been in a bit in a funk lately, and my creativity was just not there, so I took a few days off, when I realized that it has been a year since we lost our Mom.

While sleeping last night, this card came to me, so it is dedicated to my Mom … who “LOVED” Butterflies!!

I started with the Gingham Gala for my background and the Botanical Butterfly (SAB) Designer Series papers, along with the butterfly punch from the bundle. I used the Balmy Blue from the Gingham Gala Cardstock pack to mat my Balmy Blue Gingham paper … Blue was my Mom’s favorite color. Her bathrooms was actually this color blue with butterflies!

When punching out the butterflies from the Botanical Butterfly Designer paper (FREE with a $50 purchase during SAB / Sale-a-bration!) I cut out the large butterfly and attached it to a piece of vellum cardstock … this made it easier to slide the butterfly into the punch and I actually kept it on my butterfly for a 3-D effect.

The little butterflies are punched out from another pattern from the Botanical Butterfly Designer paper.  All of my butterflies are highlighting my greeting which comes from the Wonderful Romance stamp set and is punched out with the 2″ Circle punch.  My butterflies and greeting are popped up with the Stampin’ Dimensionals.

My card was completed with a pretty bow from the Organdy Ribbon Combo pack that coordinates with the Gingham Gala product suite and can be yours free with a $50 purchase during our Sale-a-bration period.

I think my Mom would love this card, and I thank you for spending some of your time with me as I honor my Mom.

if you enjoy my blog, please share it with your friends.

Have a blessed day ~
