Hi Everybody! I'm so excited to try out all my new Stampin' UP! Stamps and supplies and to share them with you. I promise to get back to using the Sweet Treat cups and circle punch soon. I loved how this card turned out. Simple and adorable. Please visit my ordering website link above to order items you may like. Products used:
Punches: 118073 Large Fancy Flower, 116629 Butterfly, 118402 Scallop Trim Border (*Free with qualifying purchase in the Sale-a-bration catalog.)
Stamp set 118134 With All My Heart (clear set) from the Occasions mini catalog.
Regal Rose card stock and Classic Ink 105211 (I purchased the assorted Rich Regals cardstock to have variety in this color group.) Whisper white scrap cardstock 100730 + one 4 x 3 piece.
White grosgrain ribbon109025
Assembly:Cut your 8.5×11 cardstock into 4 1/4" x 11. Fold and score – card will fold upwards.
With butterfly punch – punch 2 butterflies. Using the biggest flower from the stamp set, ink with Regal Rose and stamp one butterfly. Make sure to have scrap paper underneath as you will stamp off the butterfly. For the other butterfly, take a sponge or dabber and ink around the edges and lightly on top. Layer the butterflies and attach brad through both. I used a piercer to make the hole. Bend the wings of the top butterfly inward to make 3-d. Set a side for now.
From the right side of the card, take your flower punch and punch out a flower. See image for approx. placement. On a scrap of whisper white, take the same biggest flower image and stamp. Take flower punch and line up the image – will fit perfectly!! (Thanks Stampin UP!) punch out flower. Add adhesive to the back of punched flower and place on the inside of the card so it aligns with punched out image on front. See my video for technique to align perfectly.
Take 4 1/4"x1 3/4" whisper white and using the scallop trim border punch, punch border along the 4" side. If you're brave, try turning the corner – see video. I have on my wish list to get the scallop corner punch! But this worked ok for me. Stamp the Friend stamp in middle of your bordered whisper white.
Adhere bordered piece along bottom of card, Tie white ribbon to fit on top of white. With card closed, adhere layered butterfly close to the punched flower.
This punch out technique works well with all sorts of sizes. Happy Crafting! ~ Dee
