I decided to dust off my Stampin' Up! Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die and a create simple and pretty card for a friend! I love how easy it is to layer the two sizes for a fluttery result! The design is based on this week's Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge (PPA176). Check out what the rest of the PPA Resident Artists have come up with and PLAY ALONG HERE!
STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:
- Nope. I didn't miss the diagonal element on the sketch. Instead, I relied on the pattern of the Afternoon Picnic Designer Series Paper to define the diagonal pattern.
- A little stick-on bling (Rhinestone Basic Jewels and Large Rhinestone Basic Jewels) accents the sentiment and tops the Neutrals Designer Button (centered on the butterfly).
- A Stampin' Up! Glue Dot is your best friend for keeping a button in place!
- The finishing touch is a lined envelope with a matching pattern. I was able to crop the liner in seconds with the Envelope Liners Framelits Dies. At $26.95, the Envelope Liners Dies are a fabulous choice for the $25 Starter Kit Special!
