Hello Butterfly!

Today's card is inspiration from another I saw on Stampin' Connection; an exclusive sight for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators...just one of the many perks of buying the Starter Kit!  The Starter Kit will include an ADDITIONAL 25% in FREE product beginning Tuesday, January 22nd, when Sale-A-Bration begins.  You will be able to choose ANY PRODUCTS totaling $156.50 for only $99 with FREE shipping.  This special 25th Anniversary promotion runs from January 22-March 22.  Don't miss out on joining the fun!  You can find details by CLICKING HERE. Remember, too, Sale-A-Bration provides you with a FREE item of your choice, from the special flyer, for EVERY $50 you spend during January 22-March 22.

Here are tips to creating this card:
  1. Dimensions for the square cardstock images on the front are: Whisper White 3.75"x3.75", Pool Party 3.5"x3.5"
  2. Push your circle punch all the way into the Pool Party cardstock to get a whole in the center. I've designed the card this way on purpose so you don't have to worry about centering it.
  3. Save that Pool Party circle and stamp a sentiment on it for the inside of your card. Great use of re-purposing that left over!
  4. Add the 1"x3.5" piece of designer paper to the front of the punched Pool Party piece then re-insert it into the circle punch and punch again. Be careful to line it up well.
  5. The Delicate Details Lace Tape is simply run across the cardstock. I love this stuff! It's super easy to work with and can be lifted and repositioned.
  6. I "stamped off" one layer of ink for the small butterflies on scratch paper before stamping them on my cardstock to make them lighter.
  7. I used Dimensionals on the center butterfly and on the words.
