Hello Beautiful – Butterfly Gala Card

It’s a butterfly hat trick for me. The whole Gingham Gala suite just refuses to leave my desk. I love it.  My card today is a simple layout and makes good use of the beautiful DSP. I have tons of DSP and I figure I need to use it up as it’s getting out of control. Plus DSP gives you maximum effect with minimal work because the beauty of the paper will enhance even a simple project.

The Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and Butterfly elements are free products which can be earned with a qualifying purchase. Take a look at this video for all the details of the Sale-A-Bration products that coordinate with the Gingham Gala suite. You don’t want to miss it. 

To Make this Card:

You will need the 3 largest circles from the Stitched Framelits dies. Die cut the larger 2 from DSP and the smallest from Shimmery White Cardstock. Take your Shimmery White Cardstock and water colour it using the ink refills and aqua painter. Let this thoroughly dry. Then stamp the sentiment. 

The flax ribbon has been coloured in with Light Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend. The sequins are self adhesive so they are easy to add to any project. For dimension, I added the butterfly elements, making this a very quick card to complete. 

Sale-A-Bration runs until 31st March. It’s your opportunity to earn some fabulous products for free.

Simple Gift Packaging for Butterfly Elements

My project today packages the Butterfly Elements which is a free Sale-A-Bration product you can get with a $90 purchase. What a lovely gift this would make for a crafty friend or for crafty you.

I have used also used the Sale-A-Bration Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper. To punch out the butterfly, cut out a section of the DSP. Then use a post-it-note as a ‘handle’ to help you maneuver it into the punch. This means you won’t waste any of that beautiful paper.

Cut a strip of the Designer Series Paper and wrap it around, attaching it with double sided tape at the join. Add the tag created with the Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala DSP layered onto Balmy Blue cardstock. I love the cheerfulness of these 2 colours. Pop on your butterfly with some mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and you have a cute little gift for a friend.
