Butterfly Sorbet

Good morning, Friends! Well it's the start of the two week spring break for our kiddos around here! So Nick is happily sleeping in! The weather looks to be really nice, too! I am so bummed that both my Kansas teams lost yesterday! Soooo close!! That last second shot just wouldn't fall for us. I was so nervous for WSU's game that I had to make myself busy so I went and created cards while the game was going on. I could hear the tv and every once in a while I would peek to see what was going on. What a heartbreaker that one was. But they still are winners to me! a 35-0 run for the season! Who could be upset about that? Looking forward to the next big upset!!

My inspiration for my cards yesterday came from looking through past Stampin' Up! magazines. And this was one of them!

  • Card base is Whisper White
  • Use the Banners framelits to make a banner from Sweet Sorbet designer paper and adhere to card
  • Adhere a strip of Basic Black card stock to card
  • Stamp the greeting from Sweet Essentials in black StazOn onto a strip of Whisper White and flag the end then adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Tie a piece of Pool Party twine from the Sweet Sorbet accessory pack through a Basic Metal button and adhere to card
  • Use the Bitty Butterfly punch to punch two butterflies from some Sweet Sorbet designer paper and adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Add rhinestones to butterfiles
