Butterfly Basics


Not sure if this card fold has a particular name but it looks like a normal card till you open it. Hopefully the recipient knows how to display it. I made some Christmas cards like this a couple of years ago and I found out later most people didn't realise this was how the card was meant to be. I think I should have sent instructions with the cards.

The base card is Very Vanilla (#106550) and I have also used Real Red card (#106578) and Timeless Elegance DSP (#138444). I scored the front in the centre of the card to be able to make the fold, before embossing with the Elegant Dots embossing folder (#138287). The labels were cut with the Deco Labels Collection Framelits (#127012) and Happy Birthday from Sassy Salutations stamp set (#c126707, #w132070) is stamped with Real Red ink (#126949). Only tape the bottom part of the label to the card to allow the card to be be displayed as shown.  I added some Metal Rimmed Pearls (#138394) under the sentiment.
The flowers are from Butterfly Basics stamp set (#c139950, #w138694) and were stamped with Pear Pizzaz ink (#131180) on the inside of the card.  I also stamped the flowers using Real Red ink on some scrap card, hand cut them and placed them on top of the already stamped flowers using Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430). This holds the card in place as shown.

Here are this weeks WEEKLY DEALS. Check them out and if you would like to take advantage of any of these specials just let me know.

Have a great day.

Till next time,
Happy Stamping!
