Butterfly Feel Better Card

Hello and happy day! Wherever you are, I hope your day has been lovely and I'm glad you stopped by my blog. This weekend here in Oklahoma, we are expecting cooler weather and that has put a big smile on my face. I'm so ready for FALL!

My afternoon was spent creating this Butterfly Feel Better Card, it was inspired by three challenges listed below:
All supplies for this card are by Stampin' Up! and here is the list:
  • Paper: Whisper White and Garden Green cardstock.
  • Stamps: Sassy Salutations, Butterfly Basics and Watercolor Wings.
  • Inks: Garden Green, Island Indigo, Pacific Point, Crumb Cake and clear VersaMark.
  • Other Stuff: Heat tool, Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter, Bold Butterfly framelit die, Big Shot, and Stampin' dimensionals.
The design is a minimized version of a previous card I made, click here. I debated about using patterned paper but decided to keep it clean.

Here is a close-up of the embossed glitter detail:

My crafty companion waking up from his nap:

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

  1. Your card is stunning, Andrea! Wow, I love that butterfly so much! I clicked back to see the first card, which is also beautiful, but I think I like this one better, with the white border. Well done on both! Have a great weekend and Happy Crafting!

  5. Hi Andrea, I can hear you about the cooler weather. In our area of SC, we had some lovely cooler days, but then got another little blast of heat...altho not so hot as previous days. We can tell that fall is on the way. No color changes in the leaves just yet. Love the deep blues on this gorgeous butterfly. He looks wonderful perched against the fronds of the green ferns and the crisp white of the background makes the composition stand out so nicely. TFS & Happy Sunday.
