You Give Me Butterflies Card

This is another sentiment from my new My Favorite Things sentiment set.

The butterflies are all punched from American Crafts Amy Tangerine On A Whim scraps with a Martha Stewart punch (it punches 2 small and one large butterfly at once, if you want 3 butterflies).

I did think, “oh, my, what have I gotten myself into??” about halfway through the gluing process. I am in love with the final card.

Supplies: Stamp – My Favorite Things, paper – American Crafts Amy Tangerine On A Whim, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Stardream Silver, ink – VersaMark, die – Lawn Fawn, punch – Martha Stewart, embossing powder – Stampin’ Up! Sterling Silver.

I was running out of time for my personal holiday cards!! The Crate Paper Falala paper pad helped make it easier for me.

Positive and Negative Snowflake Season’s Greetings Card

I had a scrap of silver mirror paper, with snowflakes cut out…I needed to figure out how to use it. Turns out it was not square/even (I kept it, need to figure out if I have a shape die that will preserve most of it!), so I made a new scrap, and saved the center pieces of the snowflakes to glue onto the design. The mirror piece was mounted on Shine shimmering paper.

Before I got around to photographing the above card, I got serious with the other leftover snowflake scrap. I decided an oval die would preserve the most for me.

The snowflakes I added were cut from Shimmering White card stock.

I am linking this up to Simon Says Stamp’s Christmas Card Day post – the random winner will get a $100 gift card.
