Butterfly Birthday Wishes …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

I hope you have been able to enjoy the beautiful weather we have been having (in Wisconsin) … today we are suppose to hit 70 degrees!

Spring is such a wonderful time a year …. renewal, rebirth, and return of that glorious warm sunshine. Today’s card share was inspired by spring …

A card filled with butterflies. I used Wisteria Wonder and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper!

I cut my butterfly out of the glimmer paper that I used for my mat … it’s a great way to save money.

I then simply placed the Whisper White embossed piece … I used the Spring Flowers folder from the Occasions Catalog.

A simple Happy Birthday  is all it needed and I got that from the “And Many More” stamp set … I love the whimsical font, it’s so pretty and goes beautifully with our butterflies.  I used the Word Window punch for my greeting.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card share, and I thank you for stopping by.

Have a wonderful weekend ~

Wedding Wishes in White …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Yesterday I said I would share with you a wedding card, a bit nontraditional but I think you will like it. I’ve been using the butterfly a lot lately and today you will see how I incorporated it into my card.

When we think of weddings, we think of white … with a touch of color. Well that is exactly what my thoughts were on my card to. My base is Whisper White with a hint of Wisteria Wonder, and then I added a touch of sparkle with the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.

You can see my layers and then I topped that off with a final piece of Whisper White that was embossed with our new “Spring Flowers” embossing folder.

Now it was time for my butterfly in Whisper White … no, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper! For a more cost effective approach … I cut my butterfly out of the glimmer paper that I used for my mat …

then simply placed the embossed piece of white over it and popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it more character. (I should have cut my Wisteria butterfly from the mat too!)

Here is the card fully assembled … The Wisteria butterfly behind the Dazzling Diamonds butterfly gives it a bit of a shadow effect, quite stunning!

A simple “Congratulations” is all it needed and I got that from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set, and used the Bitty Banners framelit to cut it out. Simple yet elegant, and it is prettier in person.

I think this would also make the perfect birthday card. My Mom loves butterflies so I’ll just switch out the greeting and have the perfect card to give her.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card share, and I thank you for stopping by.

Have a wonderful weekend ~
