Butterfly Basics

This is a simple but elegant card that has so many things you can do with it. You could change the colors or use different flower stamps.  It could also be a bright and elegant birthday card for the person whom LOVES flowers.

Remember sayings, colors, cardstock and stamps can all be interchangeable.

  1. Cut an 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ Soft Suede cardstock and fold in half for the card base.
  2. Cut 2 – 5 1/4″ x 4″ Whisper White cardstock for the outer and the inner card.
  3. Stamp the ‘block’ from the Work Of Art stamp set using Soft Suede, Sahara Sand and Smoky Slate.
  4. Stamp the flower from the Butterfly Basics in Memento Black.
    TIP: For a more elegant card, emboss the image in Black.
  5. Stamp your sentiment in Memento Black or emboss the image. I  like the ‘With Sympathy’ sayings found in the Rose Wonder stamp set.
  6. For the inside stamp one block in the Sahara Sand bottom right corner, then stamp the top of the flower in that corner.
  7. Adhere the inside and outside to the card base.

Bundle and save when possible. Many times I have only bought the stamp set, then ended up buying the coordinating punches or thinlets/framelits. Buying the bundle will save you 10%.
