Cards For Sale

Thanks


Happy Thursday Peeps!
Today's card share is a semi CASE of THIS card by Donna of Butternut Sage Designs. I first saw it on Stampin Connection, a demo only site, and thought it was so pretty and definitely  a very mailable card, I wanted to make one like it. I, of course, changed it up a bit in the course of making it. I LOVE the new Stampin UP edgelits dies, but they have proved to be just a bit challenging for me. Maybe it is just me but I have had a little bit of trouble making my layers line up properly, but I will keep at it and get it figured out.
So even tho this cards layers are not quite perfect, I still like the outcome.


You can see more in this pic where the layers are off somewhat! EEEK!! 

So anyway the card is made with confetti cream card stock and the DSP and stamp set is from the upcoming Stampin Up Sale-a-Bration which begins the 24th of this month.
The stamp set is called Outlined Occasions and the DSP is Everyday Enchantment, that paper is awesome!!!
The butterfly is from the "Flight of the Butterfly" stamp set. 
 I stamped the butterfly with Calypso Coral onto the card and once on some scrap card stock. I cut it out and added it to the base gluing it just in the middle and pulling up the wings. I added a couple of basic pearls in the center of the butterfly and to the top edges of the card. 
The "Thanks"  is colored in with my aqua painter using calypso coral, baja breeze and old olive ink.
Well, that is all from me, thanks for stopping by and 
HAPPY STAMPING!

thank you for casing me Vicki...personally I bought more than one edgelit and cut all my paper at once! That is my trick for getting perfectly even layers!!!
